The temp today was in the upper fifties so I decided to make a make a quite trip to Walker County Lake to land a few rainbow. I was fishing right before the temps were supposed to drop in the twenties overnight. In fact we are suppose to get at least 3 inches of snow by noon tomorrow. Southerns go wild when they hear the word snow and crowd in the supermarkets to stock up on milk and bread. Hopefully the snow will all be gone by Wednesday and we will back in the rain mode. In fact I would much rather have the snow than the rain. The rain has slowed our house construction to a crawl, the inside will be finished before the outside. 
Healthy rainbow landed using the Flashback; no mending just making long cast and a slow retrieve. I missed a few simply because I wasn't watching my line close enough. It seems fish always know when you're not paying attention, that's when they decide to hit. 
A peaceful couple of hours until the wind kicked up and the temps started to drop. I'm missing fishing the tailrace and its tight seams and pocket water. I'm afraid the it's out for now because of all the rain and generation. In the meantime I will stay in practice with the lake trout. 
Thought I would share the family photo during our Xmas stay in Tennessee. The little creek behind the willow tree has small fish in it for the kids to play with. 
Just wondering if any of you guys have used fly clips. I read a short description the other day detailing how handy they are when changing flies. This one in the image is a size 1 which will handle size 12 to 16 flies. I don't know how effective it would be when using dry flies.

Why work with a guided DIY service?

Because unlike other Patagonia fly-fishing business models/services, our guided DIY fishing programs focus 100% on fishing.  Due to our unique program, our client's catch great fish and report:

We had an excellent time fishing with First Cast Fly Fishing.  Mark was very easy to work with and provided a wealth of information that was helpful for planning our trip.








The guides were truly top notch and worked hard to consistently put us in position to catch fish.  Overall it was a wonderful experience and we hope to come back in the coming years.
