04.24.13 Zac Reinstein & Carter Stokes on the Chauga River.  Carter and I had a great day on the Chauga.  We both couldn’t keep track of the number we caught. Carter got two rainbows on his sculpin and dropper at the same time. I had a small Brookie on that a big rainbow came up and ate it, I was shocked and couldn’t pull him out without hurting the Raindow too much. We both had two fish on cast, two very different ways.
