I've been going to different rivers over the last few weeks, not a huge amount of success fishing wise, but it's been fun. Tried out Crane Creek (a little 8 ft wide stream), Whitewater River, and went to Big Bend on the Chattooga today. Ran into a little black bear hiking in this morning. Then my reel broke. The reel separated from the base while casting. I super glued it back together and it seems to be holding, but I don't trust it long term, so I ordered a new reel. Took some pictures from the Whitewater and Big Bend.
