Late Start Today
Sorry, I had some problems this morning with our Perfect Fly Website. I try to have
these done well in advance but lately, stuck in the cold weather I have tried to keep
the reports on the weather and streams current. That didn't work out so well today. I
added some things on our Perfect Fly site that I had put off starting today at
5:00AM. For some strange reason, I think to do with Yahoo, my site host, or maybe I
was asleep and did it myself, the entire site downloaded from scratch Although I
have the faster Internet connection you can get in Pigeon Forge, it took until about
twenty minutes after 10:00 to download it all. It is a huge site.

There was a lot of snow in the mountains yesterday. From about 3500 feet up it's
still melting. The rain this morning isn't that cold and maybe it will speed up the
melting of the snow.

I cast so many times testing new fly rods yesterday, I have a bad sore arm this
morning. Didn't think I could ever do that but I was trying some heavy proto type
saltwater rods using real flies. By the way, the tarpon fishing in Little Pigeon River is
terrible. I don't recommend it.

Sorry for today but maybe I will get back in gear by tomorrow. I have four computers
but the websites are all on one. I'm not to sure that was a smart move on my part. I
was going nuts waiting this morning.
