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!

Well, Its been over a month since I reported any fishing results,etc and it's because we were in Maryland watching our granddaughter Faith playing in a softball tournament. Although her team didn't meet expectations, Faith did. We are proud of her. She will be coming to NC in a few weeks with here mother, Terry. Getting back to fishing 🎣, the delayed harvest rivers are fishing slow, as expected, however- the cooler water in the mountains are still producing great fishing. Today, I spent some time with my good friend and excellent fisherman, Austin Shoemaker. Here are a few photos of the creek we fished and some (12) of the magnificent brook trout caught ...

Four years ago today, I retired from working, and started Blue Chip Fly Fishing 🎣. I celebrated by taking my friend Steve Weinberg to the Cherokee Trophy Section. Steve caught his first trout on a fly rod. In fact, he qualifies for Silver Status on our Wall of Fame. During the trip, I made a few casts myself and landed this beautiful 22" Rainbow
Imagine, fishing on a Wednesday and not having to worry about emails and phone calls. Life is good !

So, the sign says, CATCH and RELEASE. That's exactly what we did last Friday. Terry Hester from South Carolina and his son Casey, from Ohio, fished the Cherokee C& R. Both came to fish for a trophy fish. Casey hooked a nice 18" Rainbow, played it for approximately 10 minutes before losing it at the net. (Almost). Terry hooked into a monster, approximately 24", but that fish did not stay on to long as it was running as soon as it felt the hook. Even though we didn't land a trophy, father and son had a great time together. I just love when a father takes his son, or daughter fishing. Fathers Day is coming soon. I think getting a Certificate to come fly fishing would make a nice gift. Check out our web site. There is a place to get a Certificate on every page. ... See MoreSee Less

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of guiding a repeat client, Kirk Shein, his son Cameron, and his Son-in-Law, Nick Williamson ( Purple Hat ) Both Kirk and his son have fly fished before and no stranger to catching Trout. However, Nick has never fly fished before. Kirk gave me an assignment to put a fly rod in his hands, teach him to cast, nymph fish, and Catch a trout. Mission accomplished!Therefore, Nick gets inducted into our Wall of Fame ( Bronze Status ) Both Kirk and Cameron missed some big fish that would have qualified them. They'll have to wait until next time. However, they all caught a lot of fish, as the Tuckaseigee in Webster continues to produce memories. ( ps: Cameron fell in several times but came up with a smile each time 😃 ... See MoreSee Less

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.
