Fished a dirty French Broad today with mudpuppy, southernfly and flydoctor. Maybe 2-3 inches of visibility...it was a fun float 3 really good rapids probably class 3s. The fishing was really off, my beer to fish ratio was 1:1...4 beers and 4 fish :shock: , shoulda drank more beer. A few pics.

Oh that dirty Broad. She'll get ya when she's dirty.

The rapids were fun.

We'll do it again. Maybe the Muskie section or North to the TN line.

It can fish good, it really can. The night before, I checked it for clarity and it was really clear.

I only caught 1.

Nice boat ride though.

Nice flicks. That's a Cardinal Flower you got there Kim. I got a pic of one in the Smokies and had to look it up.
