8106269A 0A9C 4B9A 82D6 B077BA58E86FWe have had more than enough rain over the last few weeks here in East Tennessee. I saw an article on WBIR’s website that showed this February as Knoxville’s 8th wettest February on record. This has severely limited our fishing opportunities as of late. Our area reservoirs are beyond full, and most of them are either spilling or sluicing. We still have a long way to go before we start seeing consistent wadeable flows on our tailwaters. A few Sundays ago, we were able to make it out to the Clinch before they started spilling. We caught a handful of nice slot-sized rainbows before the water got too murky. Every fish I caught was between 14 and 17” and strong and healthy. We can only expect them to have that same fight once they stop spilling.

SUPERFLY Happy Hour Returns 2

We are excited to host another installment of the Superfly Happy Hour this Thursday at the shop starting at 5pm. Our own shop staff will be demonstrating fly tying techniques for utilizing brushes. Brushes can be intimidating but are extremely easy to use and allow tyers to make perfect tapers with very little trimming. We will showcase multiple fly patterns for smallmouth, saltwater species, trout, and even anadromous fish!


Per usual, we will have a cooler of refreshments along with snacks. Pull up a chair to the counter, bring a vise of your own, or just come hangout and socialize with our local angling community! Those who decide to join us can also shop for fly tying materials at a discount of 20% off!
