Fly Fish Middle Tennessee

The weather has been on the wet side this year. The lakes are just high enough and anglers will to watch the generation forecasts closely. There are still good windows of excellent flow to get on the water and find yourself in the casting braces of the F/V Southeastern Fly. Clay found himself in the front brace on high water, slingin' streamers, and came up with some nice browns and this fine rainbow (see above). On the other end of the flows we found Eddie some nice brown trout (see photo below), with as little flow as I've seen in a while. Plenty of anglers have been with us and found good flows and good fish.
Both the Caney and the Elk have been fishing well. We are finding ways to beat the heat and the traffic by scheduling at more the right times than not. Don't let anyone tell you different, you can get some water to yourself even on the weekdays and weekends. We are having a good time on both rivers.
If you aren't following Middle Tennessee Fly Fishers on Facebook, I recommend pulling up their page up and take a look at the entomology work they did on the Caney Fork the other day. There are good photos and those photos can provide plenty of ideas for fly tying.

For anyone waiting until just the right time to book your date with me in the drifter, the summertime bite up top is just around the corner. The fish are starting to look up and those terrestrials we have been holding in the box are getting some good looks. The calendar is filling so if you are ready to fish, please get in touch with me to get your date set.

If you aren't following Southeastern Fly on Facebook and Instagram you are missing some of the action. Good and entertaining conversations on very serious subjects like chocolate and Fishtail Fridays. It's worth a click and a follow for sure. 

For all the people who booked trips this year, some who had rescheduled for weather and those who repeated already, thank you for choosing Southeastern Fly! It's been a good year so far and there is much more to come.
