A Flyfisherman's Journey through Southern Appalachia
Another beautiful day on the stream
Tempts near 70 today, sunburn on the face and over thirty fish caught, one going at 21 inches yet again. While fishing the lower portion, I noticed a large dark figure swimming by me. I first thought it was debris of some sort. In a few seconds I relized that I had a fishing partner, a large Beaver was enjoying a swim within 20 feet of me. I am not sure who scared who first, once he seen me it was a splash of the tail and he dived under only to re-surface swimming up stream next to me again. Wish I had a better picture of him.
