I was halfway back to the cabin when it dawned on me - I just made a slam.
That is, I caught brook, rainbow and brown trout on dry flies on the same outing, with all the fish coming out of the same little wild creek near the Blue Ridge Parkway ... on a tourist-laden Sunday afternoon.
The temperature in nearby Asheville was 94 when I left.
It was 80 at the stream.
What a wonderful day.
