I would like to share a few of my Fly Fishing Resolutions for 2013.
1.) Get my family more involved on the River. My oldest son will be turning 5 this Summer and starts Kindergarten in the Fall. He's been on a couple fishing trips and has had a blast. I've got a goal for him to catch a trout this year by himself. I think he's up to it! :)
|Here is a picture of Andrew and his first trip ever to the Clinch River back in April of 2012. We mostly played in the water and threw rocks, but he had fun and it is a memory I'll have forever.|
2.) Obviously - More time on the water. Doesn't really matter where, but I would like to explore the Smoky Mountains more and learn to become a better small stream fisherman. I'd also like to get a few trips on the South Holston and Davidson River this year. I've fished both of these rivers over the past few years and they are terrific. Both have their quirks and totally different styles, but both can reward you with a great catch.
3.) Tie Flies! and learn new patterns.
