Great Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing at its Best!

Ed Hudon, Expert Fly Fishing GuideCheck out the photos to below. We have Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Palomino (Yellow) Trout, my brother Tony fishing a small creek, Dorothy catching her first fish with a fly rod. My good buddy, Tony from GA, wondering, “what the heck is that?” when an Elk decided to walk through our fishing hole in Cherokee, NC. Last but not least, is one of the best trout fisherman I know, Forrest showing off this pre-historic Brown Trout. Each one of these photos is a great memory. I’m sure you will have your own memory to look back on as well. Let’s go fishing!

So I taped the U.S. Open and took her fishing. Dottie wanted to catch a trophy trout so she could make our Wall of Fame. Here are some photos. She got her trophy! ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

Last year, I donated a three day fishing trip ( cabin included) to the Michigan chapter of Trout Unlimited, near the famous AuSable river. In return, my friend Chad Fath, owner of CR River Products recipacaded the offer. So Dottie and I took him up on his offer. We dry fly fished the following rivers; AuSable, Manistee, and Smith Creek. We had a great time, as Chad guided us the whole time we were there. Besides the beautiful fish, we seen white tail deer, pheasant, and a Bald Eagle 🦅
Check out CR River Products on the web. Besides making fishing nets and other wood products, he also provides cabin rentals and guided services. He pricing is unbelievable! Hope you enjoy some of the photos I took.

Blue Chip Fly Fishing

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend 🇱🇷. I rested up. Had 4 guided trips in a week, plus a round of golf 🏌️ One of the trips was with Harry Thomas and his wife Judy, from Punta Gorda, Florida. We started out Nymphing and did very well. Then Judy asked if she could try dry fly fishing 🦗
So I put on a Purple Parachute size 16 with a dropper. I didn’t expect too much but wanted to satisfy her request. It didn’t take long before Judy was catching trout left and right. I was impressed. After catching a Brown and a Brookie, I said we needed a Rainbow trout to get the slam. She succeeded.
While all this was going on, Harry noticed. So I put him on the same combination. It didn’t take long for this experience fisherman to get his slam too. Harry and Judy are the mother and father of Quincy Thayer. Quincy and her two sons, Jake and Bryce fished with me last year. They also had a great time and made our Wall of Fame. I hope you enjoy their photos.

Rainbow TroutThis is me holding up a special breed of cut throat trout from Almont Colorado. I was fishing the famous John Taylor River. This river runs past the HARMELS Ranch Resort, in Almont.

AlexThis is my nephew Alex. He currently lives in Nevada with his brother Andrew. Look at the smile on his face. As they say in the commercial, PRICELESS. Can’t wait to go to Nevada and fish with these two guys. I get great pleasure watching someone catch a fish when I’m guiding them, even more than if I was doing the fishing myself.

EddieThis is a good friend and excellent fisherman John M. from Pennsylvania. Fishing has given me the opportunity to make good friends like John. In this photo, we are in Georgia, October 2012. We did not catch as many as we would have liked, but the scenery was breathtaking. We still talk about that trip every time we see each other.
