  • Making Memories at Tallulah River

    Tallulah River has always been my favorite Georgia river.

    My parents took to camping when I was teenager. I think Marty kept dating me because he and my Daddy got along so well, sharing a love of trout fishing. Eventually, Tallulah became a memory-making place for our boys as they grew up... numerous family gatherings with grandparents, cousins, aunts & uncles...

    We're now the proud and blessed grandparents of a granddaughter who will soon celebrate her 2nd birthday. During a recent visit, I took her to Goats on the Roof and on a whim, I detoured to Tallulah River, taking the long way home while she napped. From out of the blue -- it hit me -- I couldn't possibly travel this now-paved road without stopping.

    The water was quite chilly. However, Katherine was more-than-eager to dip her toes into the frigid water, and she was giddy with delight. I've got a feeling this girl has a love for water in her blood.

        Beautiful! I see a fly rod in her future.

          Great story Glad. I am guessing that the Tallulah now has slipped to your second favorite river.

            Caught my first trout on the Tallulah more than 60 yrs. ago. Caught many more using spinning gear and crickets. I had many experiences there, including an encounter with a moonshiner with a shotgun. I still love it there.

              Love it, as it reminds me of times with great gradfather and father cutting teeth at nimblewill creek

                If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

                  good stuff, and that shot of her with the dog is beautiful. Makes me wish my boy could spend more time with his grandparents, who are 3 states away. He loves them dearly, just as I'm sure she does y'all.
