Rich People Now Able to Fish Undisturbed.
According to the Mountain Press, rich folks will now be able to fly fish undisturbed in their gated community near Gatlinburg, Tn. Norton Creek known for its excellent fly fishing for native brook trout is being developed into an upscale gated community. The odd thing is they are trying to sell it as a way to protect the river by putting in a gated community with lots that will cost between $200,000 - $500,000. They say this will preserve the river in its natural state for all (the rich people). The nice thing is that the rich people will now have a place to fish without all the riff raff (us). I am sure the chemicals that they will use on their well manicured, gardner tended, lawns will be beneficial to the speckled trout of Norton Creek.
