For quite a while the flow on the Saluda has been to strong and high for wading safely. During the last two weeks there have been a few days that the river was wade-able. Fished from about 6 pm into the evening til around 10 pm. Started with Henry Cowen's Coyote Fly, green and white, then a black Kelly Galloup Sex Dungeon Fly after it got dark.

The big one got away! Had a knot failure, my fly-line and backing separated. There is now a big striper attached to 100 feet of fly-line swimming around in the Saluda.

You did'nt tell me about the knot failure!! :o ....I'm sure he'll ditch the line pretty quick...maybe the two jackasses we saw up in the rapids in a powerboat will pick it up with thier prop. :D

I appreciate the intel....I more than likely won't get a chance to try em' before thier gone...and if I do...it'll be btween the park and radio towers....if so I'll let ya know if I have any luck......Glad you had the chance to get into some! appreciate the cool pics and report!! :)
