Tough Conditions, Tough Day
I had big aspirations for last Saturday. This was going to be a major outing being Father's Day weekend and all. Mother nature had other plans as usual. The forecast was calling for 80% chance of rain and scattered thunderstorms, but that didn't scare us off because we were determined for an awesome day on the Clinch River. Although it never really did rain all that much, the winds were up around 20-30 mph constantly. We were also surprised to find out that the fish were really down and not as aggressive as they have been for the past several weeks.
One high point was that my buddy Rodney was able to break in his brand new Orvis Helios 2. Needless to say, he's pretty stoked about his new rod!
