N.C. Fly Fishing Team - Big Trout Boot Camp

This weekend members of the North Carolina Fly Fishing team took part in a practice session aimed at preparing them for successfully fighting and landing big fish. Eugene Shuler of Smoky Mountain Fly Fishing coordinated the event and John Hunnicutt of High Plateau Outfitters, Ltd allowed the team use of a private section of the Broad River near Black Mountain, North Carolina. The river holds some very large Rainbow and Brown trout that were stocked there a few years ago. These guys made it look easy but trust me its not. Competitive fly fishing rules don't allow for strike indicators or split shot.

I am in the process of putting together a short video from the trip but here is a bit of Monday morning "fishporn" to help you wake up.
