Great Fishing

Fishing has been great in East TN so far this year. Lots of insect activity and hungry fish. I have been guiding a lot lately and exploring new waters on my time off. Not much time to post lately. As a matter of fact, I have to go now. The fish are calling. I may take some time and post some updates later along with some pics.

I have caught some flack lately from people who do apparently read this blog from time to time. They have commented on the lack of new posts lately. So, to those people, I apologize. I have been very busy lately doing guide trips, working at the shop, doing fly fishing classes and the many other tasks that have to get done at home when spring arrives. Sometimes there isn't enough time in the day left to post new things on this blog. So if I get behind on posting just be patient. I will eventually get around to it.
This blog has been around for awhile now and we still don't have any followers and only 1 person has commented on a post. So, with that in mind, I didn't really think that people would even notice the lack of current posting. To be honest, with the lack of followers and comments, the blog is really low on my priorities when it comes to marketing initiatives. It was started as more of a service to people interested in fishing the area. That is one reason we do our fishing reports on the blog instead of posting them on our website. It works well for the most part, but due to the lack of participation from the readers, I don't really consider it to be an important aspect when it comes to marketing the business. I may be wrong. It may be more important than I realize. Who knows? Anyway, I will try to do better in the future. Time permitting of course.

Kayaks are in!

As posted previously, we have been awaiting delivery of some Freedom Hawk Kayaks. Well, good news. They are here! We put one of them together Friday and I must say that I was impressed with what I saw. They are well made and engineered with fishing in mind. Come on by and check them out. If you are in the market for a fishing vessel, I really don't think that you can beat the deal on these. They have alot to offer and the price is not bad at all.
