I managed to get over to the Hiwassee River for a couple of hours on Christmas Eve. Other than the water flow giving me some problems, I saw three Eagles and managed to catch a few trout, including this beautiful brown:
I arrived at the parking lot @ 2pm, popped open the trunk and untucked my dress shirt. It was a Tuesday afternoon in December with 70 degree weather and I was rigging up my rod to fish.....life ain't half bad. I didnt have any beer and I was fishing solo, but other than that it was a great day.
