Rod Champion from Champion Outfitters has uploaded a new fishing report for the South Holston and Watauga tail waters in East Tennessee. He gives us some great tips about which flies are working best and also announces the opening of their new shop located just below the weir dam on the South Holston River.
"On the Watauga, the big caddis’ are hatching off daily, from morning til evening. Use a size 10 or 12 dark caddis for this event. And an event it is. It is a major, air filling hatch. Of course, on a caddis’ hatch, where ever you are, a soft hackle is the ticket. For Caddis’ only ride on the water to lay their eggs. Otherwise, they burst up and as emergers and are gone. Thus a swinging soft hackle is the trick. "
