Wrapping up in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Well our final backcountry has come to an end. The fishing started off great with several fish being caught within the first few minutes of being at camp. Unfortunately an hour or two later the rain came and didn’t go away. The group stayed at it as the rain fell and we managed to catch a few more fish before dinner. The next morning the rain kept falling. It rained so hard this time that the river turned to the color of chocolate milk. The group stayed positive though, and when we realized the fishing had gone south we entertained our selves with a few games of capture the flag.

Today we will be doing laundry and organizing gear before we head to the catch and release section of the Davidson River for some evening fishing. Everybody is said that the trip is coming to an end but we are excited to spend the full day on the private section of Davidson in search of some trophy trout. We will follow that up with a big banquet dinner and enjoy our last night together before we all head our separate ways the next morning.

See you soon!
