Fly Fish Middle TN

Lou called for a trip to the river. It was a wet and lousy winter and everyone wanted to get a date for a float. Lou called at the right time and we were able to get him on the schedule and before any of us knew it we were meeting at the ramp. Ramps (or gravel bars) are an interesting place to spend just a little-bit of time. People are launching boats, trying to fish, skipping rocks and generally just passing the time. While running the shuttle angler's will often fish a little and eventually will just take in the day. This time when I returned to the boat, Jessie and Lou were just talking and passing the time. It's a great way for them to spend to spend a little time and to catch-up before the action starts.
Lou stuck the first trout while lifting a nymph. The rainbow hit the nymph on the rise and that was that, the skunk was off the boat. A short time later Jessie took his first on a dead-drift. So we were on our way to a good day, there were smiles and Krispy Kremes all around.
Fat rainbows and big-fat cigars make the days for anglers. While the fish were coming off blow-downs and off gravel bars the bigger fish came out of creek mouths. We ran nymphs through the runs across shoals and along the edges of small rock bluffs. The guys kept putting their flies in the places I asked them to put those flies and for the most part the fish kept coming. 

We are expecting good fishing into the summer . If you want to get into some good float trips, and who wouldn't, just shoot us a text or send an email to and we will get a date on the calendar. After a wet and lousy winter you will be glad you made the call.
