Hurricane Earl came close to the NC Outer Banks. I watched the radar as Earl whirled past the small and vulnerable barrier islands. Boat owners, marinas, and guides were scrambling to get their boats out of the way of Earl's wrath. In the end, Earl was not as bad as some anticipated. Flooding and beach erosion were probably the worst out of Earl's many threats. I, like many, was fearing for the worst, but of course hoping for the best. Brian Horsley, who is a fly fishing guide based out of Nags Head, said all is well on the OBX. Just a little damp.

I asked Brian if I could post a handful of his incredible shots before and after Earl. Big thanks to Mr. Horsley for allowing me to share them


Calm before the storm...









Gaston is our next concern. It's trying to form way out in the Atlantic. Maybe we can squeeze by with a weak Tropical Depression hitting the coast and moving inland. We don't need another Hurricane Earl, just a good rain laden storm system! The trout streams are getting low! On second thought, -12 degree temperatures and 3 feet of snow sounds really good right now...

On another note, this weekend will be fantastic. A cold front (or a "cooler than average front") is moving through east Tennessee, almost reaching the western Carolinas. It will give way to some fantastic fishing this Labor Day Weekend. The highest of elevations, particularly Mt. Mitchell, will experience some very cool to almost chilly temperatures. Mid to upper 50's for highs on Mt. Mitchell, dipping down into the mid to upper 40's tomorrow night. The brookies are gradually getting more and more colorful in anticipation of spawning season. Most mountain counties will see 40's for lows and 60's for highs. Fall is right around the corner! Dust off your waders, tie some of your favorite fall streamers, and get ready!
