Video preview of spring fly fishing in Tennessee and the Smokies

It’s been a long winter and we’re all itching to get back on the water. Here are a couple of video moments to help you remember what it’s like to be on the river when the sun is shining and the trout are rising.

The first clip was filmed by our good friend Carl Babcock in Kentucky. Carl did the initial editing and Ian edited it for this piece.

The next clip is of a float down the Holston River downstream of Cherokee Dam. This has become one of our favorite floats and has good caddis hatches in the spring and early summer. The dry fly fishing can be excellent.
