Brook Trout are not as difficult
to fool as the rainbow or brown

Fly Fishing the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Fly Fishing DVD's "Strategies
That Catch Trout"

anywhere; however, it's not one
of the most important ones.
You will find that Great Smoky Mountains
National Park may require some fly-fishing
methods that are a quite different than those you
may use at other places. While the methods are
vastly different from those used in fly-fishing
large western streams and rivers, they are not
that different from the headwaters of many other
eastern or western
freestone streams. The

Tanner that he forgot
to put his wading
belt on. If you slip
and fall in without a
belt or with the belt
loose, it would be
difficult to get back
up out of the water
with water in your
waders. Without a
belt, they would fill
up almost instantly.
Always keep your
wading belt on snug

your waist.
