Appalachian Brookies

So I took some time today and headed to the Smokies do a little fly fishing.  I rarely go up high for brookies and decided that today was a good day for it.  It was about 80 degrees in the valley and a little cooler up high.  The water was nice and cool and the brookies were eager.  I missed many more than I caught but had a ton of fun.  Late fall is setting in so I may go back tomorrow.  Here are a few pics:

My first cast and I was rewarded with a nice lttle brookie:
 
 
 
The runs were gin clear:
 
 
 
Another little brookie:
 
 
A bow suprises me to be so high:
 
 
Daylight is fading and it's time to go:
