Default Good Summer on the Hooch

Hello NGTO,

As I'm hammocking in Suwanee Town Park I began to reflect on what a good summer it has been. With access to such a great tailwater that stays fishable under the Scorching Southern Sun, Fly Fishing has not only brought me great joy, but also allowed me to meet some great people who share the same passion. This month in particular brought me some great highlights in my short Fly Fishing career, the first one being my first double! The rainbow took a size 20 zebra midge and the brown took a PT. It's a shame it wasn't 2 rainbows so I could live up to my name 😂

The next highlight was catching this monster Bow near the Dam Area. It took me a good while to get that pig in the net. Thanks to Gout for taking this pic!

The last few notable events were catching good sized browns during stained water conditions. Here is one I got with Greg and some others while I was out solo.

Now here is the memorable catch... I was out late and hooked into a great brown.. however I lost him once he was within touching distance... determined to get him I went back out 3 days later and fished the same spot, this picture doesn't do it justice, he had me running up and down the shoals and when I finally landed him I couldn't help but let out a big smile. Shout out to the 3 young anglers who saw me fighting it and took the photo!


Though these are some of the memorable moments I've had, they are by far not all of them. I only have a week before I head back to finish my education, and I hope to be back in December during the DH one degree smarter 😂

Well my Yuengling is getting warm and the breeze is dying so I'll get back to reminiscing and enjoying the time I have left with family and my girlfriend! I hope y'all enjoyed reading and seeing my adventures thus far and as always thanks for reading!

The pleasure is mine Rich! You sure showed me that there are indeed fish in a run when I can't catch anything out of it haha. Can't wait for Winter and I'll see you then!

It was fun fishing with you, John. They were definitely some of my more memorable trips. When are you leaving for school? If I don't see you before you head out, good luck with your last semester.

Charles! Thank you so much for all the trips! They were my most memorable as well and I'm glad I wrote reports on them! I leave for school next Sunday the 20th, I will need the luck haha. Hope you catch many fish as the weather gets colder and the turnover begins, I am already jealous!

It was good to meet you this summer, thanks for helping me find my glasses when I decided to take a nose dive on the trail.
Go finish that degree and make us all proud! There will still be some fish in the river when you get back and you're going to really enjoy the DH.

Hey Dave! It was great meeting you too! Haha felt boots and slippery trails do not mix well, I've had a few falls myself. Thanks for the kind words and I hope you don't sore lip all of them before I get back haha
