  1. No problem at all, glad I can help you out! For many years, my Dad has made it a tradition to hike to the top of frog and back on New Years Day. Forest Service trail 64 to the top of frog is my suggestion. It is the most commonly hiked and trail conditions are usually good. It is one of the more difficult routes, but worth the trek. They recently installed new trail signs there because a portion is being used in conjunction with the Benton Mackaye trail. As far as water, I wouldn't rely on a water source in the late summer. There is a water source just down the trail from the summit (towards licklog ridge), but likely will not be yielding much/if any in August. Other options for you if you are interested would be to take 2 cars and go up one side of the mountain and come down another. None of your routes will be disappointing, but if you aren't familiar with the area, some of them can be a little confusing. However, if you don't choose the the Forest Service 64 trail, my second suggestion would be hiking up Wolf Ridge. Lastly, we have seen our fair share of bears in the CNF, but they aren't too much to worry about. If you know proper bear safety, you will be just fine. I, like you, choose to carry a pistol on most backpacking treks, but honestly it's more for the people than the bears. While I chuckle at the hillbilly comment, you will be 100% safe. On the other hand, I'm sure you know not to leave valuables in your car (especially for overnight trips.) More than happy to answer any more questions you have! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have hiked big frog many of times! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I think you are talking about Hiwassee anglers. I talked to Caleb Luzader who is running it. They open the 22 of April and the address is in the Bio. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Appreciate the advice. A friend of mine was using a batman terrestrial the other day and tore them up. I'm still learning on what flies to throw during different times of the day. Any suggestions on that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes sir! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. What's hitting for y'all with trout. I think I've put the olive wooly up for a few months. I had some luck on a hares ear nymph yesterday and a couple on a BWO Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Had some fun fishing a dry fly in a retention pond yesterday evening. Caught this guy and quite a few different sunfish. I was using a black foam ant and they were loving it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Anyone had much experience fishing in the smokies? That's on my list of things to do. I've spent plenty of time hiking and kayaking there, but no fishing yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Well I know for a fact that Tellico has great fishing. I'm not sure sure on the status of Citico. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. When I went last Thursday, they were rising big time. I threw a blue winged olive and a bh olive wooly as my dropper. They killed they wooly, but never touched the blue winged olive. I think it might've been the weight of my dropper that kept them from hitting it. It would only stay on the surface a few seconds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Never hurts to give out a free sample... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Uh oh, can you get them for free? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I've bass fished for a long time and I personally think it pales in comparison to trout fishing. The trout are much more elegant and the plus is that you can eat them [emoji1417] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I'm using a Redington Crosswater (9ft 5wt). It's been a good rod for me so far. I plan to upgrade at some point, but for now it's doing the trick. A good buddy of mine landed this one today. Caught it on the Hiwassee, quite a fish for the Hiwassee. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
