Day 1: I left Chattanooga early Friday morning and made my way to Elizabethton, TN. I met up with John and Brad at a city park, and we rigged up to fish the Watauga River. I had fished the Watauga once before a number of years ago and got skunked. I rigged up the 4 weight 10 foot rod, and put on a couple of small nymphs. I picked out a nice run and landed 4 nice bows within about 30 minutes. I then moved down stream quite a ways. Nothing going down there. After a couple of hours, it was time to go. John had a slow day, but landed a 17 inch bow. Brad had done well - catching a large number of rainbows. We then went to our cabin on the SoHo - we fished the slow water for a few minutes, but couldn't get any action.
Day 3: It was cold Sunday morning - our floating options were basically non-existent, so we hit the Watauga in Elizabethton for a few hours of fishing. I had tied up two flies Sunday morning - a small purple midge, and a small frenchie. The frenchie caught 3 bows rather quickly, but then the action slowed down. JAD broke his rod right when he started - it wasn't looking good. We switched locations and again it was tough fishing. I managed to catch a nice bow right before we left.
