Recent Graduate, Experienced Journalist and Competitive Fly Fisherman

Fall Fishing

I’ve been lucky the last week. I’ve been pretty busy, but have had enough time to squeeze some fishing into my routine. This past Tuesday, the Tuckaseegee river was stocked. This was the first year I’ve been able to experience a brute stock. A brute stock is done in delayed harvest waters once every four years. The fish are bigger, and most are more aggressive. On most days over the past week, I’ve been able to catch a slam (A brook, brown and rainbow).

Thats about a 24 inch rainbow trout with very nice color.

I took a close friend, Shannon Christy fishing today. She caught her first trout on a fly rod, I think she’s hooked.

    Those fish are saying, ” How in the world did this happen to a nice guy like me.” “It must of been done with some form of trickery and deception,cause I sure didn’t see it coming.”All that by a pair of rookies. And finally,” did you see how happy our captors seemed to be with their efforts”!

  2. Hey Tucker, I met you on wed. w/ my friend Bernard at Waterrock Knob. Just wanted to say hello and check out your site. Nice fish man, and your friend Shannon is a cutie. I’m glad to see that you turn friends on to the fishing experience. The last time I went to Yellowstone I went out the west entrance and hit the famous Henry Fork River and had a total blast fly fishing. So nice and wide, no mountain laurel to get hung up on. Check out my site and stay in touch. See ya dude!
