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!

It's been some time since I guided, due to an illness. Fully recovered, I fished with Pete Sabo, of Bryson City, and he caught his Trophy Rainbow today (6-29). Pete is our newest Wall of Famer. Nice job Pete. ( we fished the Trophy section of Cherokee ) ... See MoreSee Less

Wall of Fame Day: 🍾🏆

I recently had the pleasure of guiding my friend Ray Rhoney and his two buddies, Hal Howard & Steve Edwards. We fished the Tuckaseigee River in Bryson City, then after lunch spent the afternoon at the Tuckaseigee in Webster. We had quite a day, as all three guys never fly fished before, but came away catching many fish ( lost plenty too! Lol )
They were pleased to know they made Blue Chip's Wall of Fame. Criteria: if you never fly fished before, you have to catch and land a trout that is minimum 12". If you have fly fished before, the minimum is 18".
Congratulations to the Three Amigo's. Ooh Son

Special thanks to Bobby Bennett, partner at Tuckaseigee Fly Shop, for helping me on this trip. He was very instrumental in making this a successful trip.

These boys will be back in October. See you, till then-tight lines 🎣

I couldn't help but go back to the Trophy Section of Cherokee today, especially since my wife out fished me yesterday. Lol
I had the river to myself. Only a few fisherman besides me. Sunny, a mild breeze, and a stocked river
Sat down on a rock in the river and just chilled out.
Appreciating all that we have. What could be better? Even if I didn't caught anything today, I was ok, however- seams when you have that I don't care attitude, you get lucky. I caught 5 Trophy fish today. I am at peace with the fishing gods. Thank you.

A belated Mothers Day gift for my wife Dottie. She wanted to go fishing to catch a fish that qualified for my Wall of Fame. So, I took Dottie to her favorite spot on the Trophy Section of Cherokees Catch & Release. The first hour of fishing did not produce even a bite. Dottie took a 10 minute break while I changed flies. Then, Second drift she caught her Trophy. At lease a SIX (6) pound Rainbow. !!
Can't wait for Fathers Day

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.
