Went back "home" to Asheville for the weekend and hit some streams when I found time. The first was a blue line that I've fished since the late 90's. No pics since I decided not to ruin the memory by bringing my camera. Caught dozens of tiny, wild bows on a light caddis. Sunday I decided to head over to the Davidson. I allowed the thought of big fish to enter my pea brain and somehow my car ended up at the Hatchery. Saw Jim from the Davidson River Social Club (the dude in the van) and we caught up. Good dude. I've not fished this water in well over a year and was glad to see the flow. Just knowing the river I put on a black zebra and red midge larvae and headed down. Not much of a crowd. Immediately saw a bow feeding and he ate on the first drift. I stuck around for another hour and caught some nice fish, or at least nice enough for me to feel slighly dirty. I left before anyone saw, but here are some shots from a few. Hope all is well with y'uns! -Knox

The stream is what it is. Crowded- yes. Freakishly large fish because of the "nutrient rich" water from the hatchery- yes. But still a fun place to get some nice fish. -Knox
