Howdy there...I have been a lurker for quite a while and finally decided to chime in. I just started to fly fish recently. I have done plenty of fishing, just not fly fishing. Caught my first with the fly rod down at the Eno today. I have been out a few times with no luck till today...I'm still getting the casting down. I had a few questions for yall experienced fly fishers. A couple times in my back cast, I snapped the fly right off. I wasn't near any trees, so it didn't hit anything, the line just snapped and took the fly off. What is the best way to prevent this in my cast? Was I just casting too hard? Was it just a poor knot? I haven't had that happen before. It seemed to happen just as I was finally casting the line a good distance away from me, too! Also - I am headed up towards Bryson City this next week. I know that the Tuck is a good place to fish, are there any other rivers worth heading to up in that area. I'm not looking for your secret location or looking to catch a monster, I just want to put a few trout in the net. Even if they are tiny! Thanks!
