Rod,
It looks like a pretty good haul for you this year, and some very special moments as well. All you needed to make that picture of you and your Father complete was to have a flyrod in your right hand: lol: Good luck next season.

Thanks guys,

And Hugh, I've took a step back from fly fishing for the time being, I've been getting back into the lake fishing here over the past year. Caught some great smallies up on Norris this year, and some great Crappie up on Douglas. I guess guiding has taken it out of me.
I do have to say I am starting to miss the fly rod some. October is right around the corner and those big browns will be starting to show up soon.

Speaking of fly fishing have to talked to ol' Phil Snapp latly?

Rod,
I think it's good sometimes to step back from a routine that you have gotten so involved in. I know when I retired from guiding I had to do some rethinking to just get out and enjoy myself. Continual guiding can be an intense thing. There is a lot of mental and physical preparation to it. Getting into growing and hunting ginseng has been a way to slowly decelerate from the hectic day to day pressure that I was under for many years. I love the outdoors and walking the mountains taking my time to look for this beautiful plant has been just what I need.

I haven't seen Phil for a few years and I was on the South Holston and Watauga this morning. I'll run into him one day and we'll open up a keg of nails :cheer:

Take good care of your Dad and I hope you get many more seasons with him.

Hugh
