Sorry that we haven’t posted anything in a while, our computer went down twice and then our program for downloading pictures got erased. It has been a rough month for us here at Frontier Anglers. The fishing on the other hand has been pretty good, we have been all over the place from the Clinch, Holston, South Holston, Cherokee Reservation and all over the park. The Clinch has fished well with pheasanttails and midges in olive, tan, and gray. We have also seen some Black Flies. The water temperature of the Holston has limited the hatch to pretty much small gray midges and very few tan Caddis. The South Holston has been incredible with Sulfurs still coming off and BWO’s mixing in with them. The browns are starting to get settled in on the redds so be careful where you step. All the delayed harvest sections should still be fishing good even with the weather turning south. The park will be tough, so fish it hard and get you nymphs down to the bottom.
Wherever you go wade safe because you don’t want to fall in, pack some extra clothes to take with you just in case. We are getting ready for spring time by tying spring hatch patterns, Carp and Smallmouth flies and various streamers. We are also looking at different trips to offer which we are excited about. We hope that everyone had a great Christmas and New Year and had a chance to get out and fish. We spent Christmas this year in St. John in the Virgin Islands and tried our hand at Bonefishing. Here are pictures from the past month from all over. Enjoy and remember if the weather is too bad to fish, spend time behind the vise. Talk to you later.
