The weather, geology, geographic location, entomology, native plant life, and fisheries management policies have all combined to create daunting obstacles for the Great Smoky Mountain fly-angler. Now, Ian Rutter unlocks the secrets of this gorgeous region, including: trout streams, game fish, fishing methods, fishing seasons, catching larger trout, trout flies, and more. Some streams are closed for the study and preservation of brook trout populations, but those that are open to fishing are described individually, including fish species, productive flies and techniques, stream features, access, easy-to-read icons, and more. If you are fortunate enough to fish this beautiful, historical area of America, this handbook will be your perfect guide.
