Default Bookies, Brookies and more Brookies

I was headed to the stream yesterday morning and I noticed one the gates were open. And then it dawned on me, hunting season had kicked in. So they open up a lot of the gates they usually keep locked except during hunting season.
Well this let me change my plans. It saved me about 1-1/2 mile walk in.
Big T had tied me up some special crickets and for 2-1/2 hours of nothing but missiles shooting form the bottom of pools and violent takes. 15 to hand and a dozen or so misses. Wow what a great morning.

Great job on the brookies! Those are pretty good size fish as well. Terrestrials are fun this time of year!

What Big T tied up for me is actually a Caddis with legs.

I LOVE to fish the GSMNP. And I had meet a older gentleman many years ago in Townsend TN. And he tied them for me for several years. But I'm not sure if he passed away or what, but I could no longer get in touch with him. So I saw where Big T was tying custom flies. So I reached out to him and he tied me 2 dozen.

Maybe Big T will read this and chime in. Or even better do a video on tying them. None the less, these thing float fast riffles better than anything as I do a lot of dry dropper.
