It was a rough one last night. The cold front that moved through left its mark. Massive oak trees that have withstood decades were snapped like a twig as wind gusts in excess of 90 mph (Strong Cat 1 hurricane strength) roared across the Carolinas. 100 mph winds were also possible. I have been living in the great state of North Carolina for all of my life. I can honestly say this was the worst damage we've seen in quite some time. Could be the worst since Hurricane Hugo. Check out the storm reports here and some eyewitness pictures of the damage here. Hope everyone is okay. 7 folks lost their life in these storms here in the south. Imagine being out in the backcountry miles away from the nearest run down shack when these storms rolled through.

No 90 mph winds today. In fact the weather just keeps getting better. The cold front cooled us all down, but starting tomorrow we gradually warm back up. The zenith of the coming warm spell looks to be this weekend. Just in time for a weekend of some fantastic fishing. This weekend will be nothing short of spectacular. Sunny skies, very warm temperatures, yet cool water that is running at normal levels, will combine to make for some great fishing. Get out there if you can! DH waters, C&R waters, wild streams, tailwaters, and everything in between should be fishing well. Check the "Recommended Flies" in the menu bar above. Hover your mouse over Fly Fishing WNC until you see "Recommended Flies."

Wow. That's terrible. It got bad here in N. Ga last night, but I'm guessing the high winds were around 50 at our house. Enough to make the house creak a bit, but nothing like what you guys experienced.

I'm hoping to get out there this weekend! Hope you get to, too Tyler!
