In the evenings we decided to drive onto the Cherokee Reservation and enjoy a meal and walking town. Stopped in one of the locally (Cherokee Indian) owned store where Valeria designed us yet another handmade bone bracelet, something that has became a tradition for us to get together. Later that evening, my friend James "Grizzly" Cates from TN came by to visit where we shared a thought or two, a nice bowl for the pipes and wondered why we haven't won the lottery yet! Always great to catch up with Jim!
Here are some pictures of our journey, they tell the best story. Sorry for the lack of fish pictures but given the water level issues it quickly turned into a scouting trip for future trips, and did we see some good stuff! It's great to see your son grow into such a fine young man, carrying on his fathers tradition of Flyfishing and enjoying the outdoors. To see him delicatly land his fly, appreciate the land and understand, it's not just about the fish. I'm very proud of him!
Ps.. He cooks a mean breakfast too! :)
