Before planning a trip to the South Holston make sure you check out my latest blog post about what sections are closed for spawning. This information can be difficult to find online and even harder to notice on the small signs posted on the river. Detailed with approximate GPS coordinates and red lines drawn over maps, you’ll never be publicly shamed or humiliated by the TWRA again.

Before my line even touches the water I open my fly box and stare down thinking about what I should use today and why. Over the last several years I’ve learned about the bugs that inhabit the South Holston and Watauga rivers. I know their names, I know their life stages, and I can turn over rocks and identify what they are. While catching fish is fun, I’m taking time to appreciate all the little things that go into it.
Go check out my new blog titled “For the love of the sport... or for the gram?” Do you think social media is affecting the integrity of fly fishing? (Link in bio)
I spent a lot of time in 2018 worrying about my next post on Instagram, something I hope to leave behind in 2019 and remind myself the real reasons why I fly fish.
Missing the days when Thorin was just a little fluff ball, could sit on my lap without crushing me, and took 6 hour naps on the raft. #flyfishingdog
Fly Fishing and Wine - get your dose of both this weekend in Virginia! Swing by and say hello to the SHRC crew!
Big fish, small bugs, and 6x. #letsgo
It was a beautiful day for fly fishing... not as much for streamers though. 😂
I was excited to help test out @tnstreamerdreamer
’s new raft, and what made it even sweeter was knowing the amount of blood, sweat, and tears that went into it since he hand built the floor and welded the frame on his own. #goals
