This guy is not fly fishing

I was both astonished and dismayed to find a young fellow fishing in the river just across the street from our cabin .... with worms.
Another sign the apocalypse is upon us.
There still is not much water there, and the trout are extra spooky, even after the rain last week.
I don't think the kid caught any. He was almost stepping on the fish, which may or may not be a new method in the mountains for catching trout...just stomp on 'em.

Anyway, I tried to get him interested in the SMOKY MOUNTAIN FLY CLUB that features up to date stream reports, adventure stories, photographs of beautiful fish and gorgeous mountain water, PLUS as FREE trout fly with each issue.
Just 14.95 for 6 issues, which come in the mail every other month.

Send check or money order to:
Smoky Mountain Fly Club
582 Parkway Road
Balsam Grove, NC 28708

These flies are authentic Southern mountain flies not found in regular catalogs but were invented in the mountains with materials that were available at the time. Flies like the Yellow Hammer, Smoky Mountain Forktail and Tellico nymph all come from this region.
