  • Success in the Rhododendron

    I caught a mess of natives. It'll be a day I remember forever. I started off far out in the back country on a stream I had never been to, but it just didn't work out. So I headed over to a place I had caught a couple before, but this time I went further and higher, and it paid off! The first 3 came out of the second run. I laid low and presented my small yellow stimulator as gently as I could. It was a beautiful day, and the fish put on quite the show of colors. I'm so glad I fought through the initial frustration of hanging my fly on all the mess of branches and rhododendron. Hope you enjoy these photos.

                Were these caught in Georgia? I hope that is not too "specific" lol.

                  Yes sir! Good ol' natives. Not every one understands the secrecy or the reason behind searching out these fish, but it is a rewarding accomplishment.

                    Wow those are pretty.
                    I can appreciate what you went through to get to those guys, as I've found myself getting frustrated just fishing somewhat tight cover on stocked rainbow streams recently haha

                        Yes, I get it! I am new to bluelining and chasing brookies but the only place I can seem to find them is on the border of other states. I was just wondering if all of these posts were from NC and I was being clueless about it.

                        FWIW, I caught my first authentic Appalachian strain Georgia brookie a few months ago. Not in love with that drive up from ATL though!

                          Wonderful. I have caught only one native and it was a treat.
