Great story and great fish. I feel like i was reading Hunter S. Thompson, not knowing what part of your story was true and what wasn't - good stuff! What is that snowball looking piece of something...

I noticed that tube a couple of years ago. I hate being reminded that the only reason I'm catching fish is because a truck came and dumped them in the river for me.

Go Simms

I went through 3 pairs of less expensive waders in one year and decided to bite the bullet on the G3 waders about 10 years ago. I still have them. For me, it's well worth the money. Also, it's the...

yes

I've never floated the Toccoa with a Guide, but I've floated it numerous times with other folks and by myself, in various watercraft. The only downside to doing it yourself is if you run into a...

good stuff!

Looks pretty good. I grew up in Alaska and my dad smoked salmon all summer. He still sends me 5-10 pounds in ziplock bags every year. He smokes it in such a way that it comes out almost like...

If I recall, Bill told our group that you have to put aside the modern notions of the "weight" of your rod when it comes to bamboo. I believe he gave an example of a 6 weight bamboo being similar to...

no problem here

They're taking members of the public out to enjoy and use a public resource. Although I've been annoyed a few times when a guide boat drops anchor in a hole I'm fishing, I don't think there is...

One other thing

One other thing I really enjoyed was going out during a break with another student and casting an 8 weight boo with Bill. He is the best I've seen.

yessir

There was a point after wrapping the thread where you had to sand the varnish around the guides. It was late in the afternoon, and I simply wasn't patient with the process. It was a delicate...

great class!

I took the class in July of 2016. You'll have a blast! You have a few folks that perform each task quickly, and a few folks that are very slow. Depending upon your pace, there can actually be a...

extra reel

I think you could buy a 10 foot 3 weight, and not worry about getting a new reel (at least for a while). My fly line never touches the water when I high stick with my 10 footer. In fact, I feel...

We put in at 1:00 and rode the high water for about an hour until it dropped out. We were chucking articulated streamers all day with sink tip hoping for a pig - a few chases, but no hook-ups with...

Help please! Flow from dam to curtis

Haven't fished toccoa in a long time. How long does it take water to get to Curtis? In other words, if generation starts at 7 am, how long for water to rise at Curtis switch?

No - it's above the DH. I think they stop stocking above the DH during the DH season, and then during the non-DH season, they stock a few points up river from Van Zants up to the campground. Just...

yes

There are some public parking fishing spots on the upper toccoa. There are 3-4 right after you turn right at Van Zants. I think they stock that area in the summer, but I'm not certain. I floated...

I've floated the HI a bunch of times, including inflatable canoe, one man toon, three man toon, and a drift boat. By far the easiest and best was the three man toon. You can get away with making a...

More info than you want!

I cut my teeth on the HI. I haven't fished it in a few years, so this information may not be current, but here are a few thoughts. The HI typically doesn't fish very well in the summer. The water...
