A couple days of camp/fish alone 150 miles away. Why do I do it when there are streams as good within 30 minutes from my house? I dunno. The weather didn't co-operate. An inch or more of rain Tuesday and Tuesday night. More on Wednesday. Oh, well, it's the Smokies....

Home stayed dry through all the rain.

Big pools weren't very productive -- lots of other fishermen on Bradley's Fork. I decided to go for smaller water (and long hikes for an old man). Did better.

Not a PFF campfire, but nice at night --

Caught some fish, hiked my #ss off, and caught a buzz around the campfire. Stayed dry in camp. A fine time. Didn't have to talk to anyone for 3 days. :D

Boy, I did miss the elaborate PFF camp meals, though. My meals consisted of cheese crackers, hot dogs, bologna and cheese sandwiches, and canned Dinty Moore beef stew. You did NOT want to share my tent. :o

Phil it's sounds like you were in a good place all around.

Bear 1: What was that?
Bear 2: I don't know for sure but it has a mean sounding roar!
Bear 1: If we do catch it you going to eat it?
Bear 2: Nope not me it's probably tough.
Bear 1: Smell pretty rough to!?
Bear 2: I believe we should go over the mountains I saw a group of tender looking out of staters on those rubber throwaway plates.

Nice Phil. I like those solo camping trips - nobody but you to set the schedule. Haven't been on one in a couple years.
