You caught a good one. Glad you got to get up here, brave the rain, and enjoy hiking the trail. Hit me up next time you visit Chattahoochee WMA. I'd be glad to take you nearby where some real SABT are!!
DM me your guess and have the money ready haha. I'll definitely take you up on that offer, I have several blue lines on my list up there in the Hooch WMA.

I totally agree. I've caught many different fish in this particular creek and depending on water conditions, creek cover, and how far up/down the creek I go; they all are colored differently. The brook trout in my photo to the left was caught in the same creek and look how colored up it is!

One of my favorite things about this board is every now and then I read and discover a) how little I know, 2) how much there is to know, and iii) marvel at how most of us just scratch the surface of what the wilderness has to offer. Pretty darn amazing.

Y'all need a show. Or a podcast. Like a cross between Survivor, Siskel and Ebert (back in the day when they used to ARGUE), and Sherlock Holmes. Take teams of wistful and nostalgic middle aged men (taking up fly-fishing as a yearning for something authentic) from prosperous cities with too-clean high-end fly gear and whip them into mountain blue-line shape whlie subjecting them to S/NABT forensics and woodcraft tasks and rhodo tunnels - instead of extinguishing a torch, losers have to knock down a hippie-cairn they stacked themselves on the first episode.

Beautiful fish. Ramped to head out tomorrow!

Great picture too ! Your finger seems to be just under that front fin and not covering up the fish much at all. Not sure if you did that on purpose or not but it came out great. I recently noticed I need to get better at holding fish to show off their sides and not cover them up so much.
