1.) I'm off to the Hiwassee early in the morning. Staying until noon or so up at Appalachia Powerhouse. As of now, it looks like I'll swing by the fly shop to get a few things. A buddy of mine gave me literally dozens upon dozens of 4x streamer hooks that he doesn't use any more, so I'm preoccupied while off the river, tying some traditional bucktail streamers such as Mickey Finns, Black Nose Dace, and Ghosts. This Summer is, in a way, a preview of what a guide's life is like. It seems like I'm always on the river this time of year. During the school year, not so much...

2.) Like mentioned above, I'll most likely make a quick visit by the fly shop to buy a few things. I'm tempted to buy a digital thermometer. This really helps in the Summer time when the water temps get dangerously high for trout. Albeit the water temps in the Hiwassee are usually cold enough for a trout's liking, there are pockets of water that look very inviting for a big trout that are simply too warm.
