    Brevard NC

    My father and I crewed off the boat at the same time this hitch so we decided to hit up NC for some trout action. We went 2 days solo and 1 with a guide I used 3 times before. The water was very low and the fishing was a bit tougher than its been in the past but we were able to catch about 40 trout on our own and another 60 with the guide Josh. I landed the odd looking giant brown on a one last chance stop at the river on the way to the airport.

    Here is another link of the pics from the guide day.

    I'm the same way. If you like it as much as I do you might want to try that area out. There are hotels in Brevard within 10 miles of a bunch of great trout streams. I fly Allegiant air. If you plan ahead the tickets are less than $50 each way. I started by using guides and the one I use will teach you how to fish on your own. Josh at Curtis Wright Outfitters. Half day trips are very reasonable. They have a good site that tells you what's biting on each river.

    My go to is either a pink worm or small pink egg with a #18 or #20 olive midge tied under. Olive, pink and copper all with flash are my favorites. I make my own worms out of a kids toy ball that works well. Here is what it looks like.
