Clear Cure Goo

So I just jumped in head first and bought some Clear Cure Goo.  After talking to a few people and doing a little research online, I realized all I really needed for most of my personal tying needs was the light($29) and a bottle of CCG's "hydro"($21).  I'm really excited to use CCG and see what my results are like.  Everyone I've spoken to has praised it giving it 5 stars.
After I get the chance to try it out, I'll be sure to post some pictures of a few flies and let you all know what my thoughts are about the product.  I'm most excited to make some bomb proof midges for my local tailwaters.

Weather Check and Ready to FISH

We've experienced quite the assortment of weather thus far this year in East Tennessee.  This isn't abnormal, but we've had tons of rain, some snow, ice, really low temps and really high temps.  Its a never ending roller coaster here when it comes to weather.  That's part of what makes TN such a great place to live.

My local river(Clinch) has continued to be blown out with TVA pushing 2 or more generators for a couple weeks now.  They also have the sluice gates open and this is producing water flows of over 15,000 cubic ft per second.  I've seen a few pictures posted around Facebook and other message boards of some areas of the Clinch and the waters are well up in the trees.

With the amounts of rain we've had I don't anticipate much tailwater fishing time until March.  I have my fingers crossed for a good sulphur hatch this year.  Last years hatch seemed a bit inconsistent and wasn't nearly as good as the one we had in 2011.  I've got my fly boxes loaded with various sulphur imitations and I hope to get to use them.  A couple of them are new variations that I think could be killer!
