............I decided I needed to fish some. I haven't as much as I use to. That needed to change. I've let the world and situations start to drive me over the edge a bit.

Drove over the line to Elizabethton Tn. to see if I still could catch a fish on a fly rod? Did manage a half dozen dries last night at the vise.

Got over there and it was a series of showers and hot sun moments. They were rising like one would have hoped. Did see enough popping up to get me wading.

No joy on a dry. First cast broke my switch rod. Not sure about that? Going to send that back to the co.

After a rod swap. Started throwing to likly risers. and good water. No joy.

One cast and the fly drown on the end of the drift.

Switched to a softhackle.

Had a pretty good evening all in all. Caught several more.

Drove home through a flood. No damage here just a lot of water.
