Guided Trips

FISHING REPORT AND SYNOPSIS: 02/18/2020

High flows continue to be problematic. Tailwaters will mostly be too high to fish until well into March at the earliest and probably more like April. If you have a boat, trips might be possible by mid to late March on high water with streamers and deep nymphing rigs.

For the Smokies, high flows continue although they have dropped to borderline fishable for at least the last couple of days. Bugs are starting to show up. Yesterday we saw lots of midges, quill gordon and blue quill mayflies, little black caddis and brown and black stoneflies. Dreary days should also produce some blue winged olives. Fish are eating well. If you pick your spots, there are plenty of fish to be caught.

The musky streams have been very high, but as flows come down the fishing should pick back up.

Product Review: Canvas Print

I was contacted a couple of months ago by Brendan from Easy Canvass Prints about doing a review of one of their products in exchange for a free canvass.  After clarifying what their expectations were I agreed. 

All I had to do was go to their website and follow the normal process for purchasing a print.  The fee was waived by using a special one-time promotion code.  For full disclosure, Easy Canvass Prints has not provided any additional compensation beyond the free Canvass Print. 

First I would like to mention how quick and easy the website was to use, at least for me.  It probably only took a total of 2-3 minutes to upload my picture, choose the various options I wanted, type in my address, and complete the transaction.  They have implemented a user friendly design that just about anyone can navigate successfully. 

As far as the actual canvass, I received a free 11x14 print of one of my favorite pictures.  The picture is one my buddy Joe McGroom took on our trip to Yellowstone country back during the summer of 2009.  The fish was a gorgeous brown trout that fell for a streamer while we were fishing the Madison River in the $3 Bridge vicinity.  Below is the photograph that I uploaded to make the print from.


Next are a few pictures of the print I received.  Notice that one of the options I chose made a mirror image of the actual photograph wrap around the sides.




As you can see, the main difference between this and the original is that I cropped the original in a little closer when I uploaded it to the website.  You can choose any position you want on the canvass and are able to crop your picture during the process.  One thing I thought sounded cool when I was ordering the print was to have the reflection of my picture wrap around the side.  I'm glad I chose that option as it definitely does look great.  Of course, if it doesn't appeal to you there are plenty of other options. 

The original picture (as shone and what I uploaded) was a touched up version of the original.  The quality of this print is not demonstrated very well in the pictures I have shone above.  The actual print was much closer in color to the original than what the pictures show, and I was more than happy with the results and would recommend Easy Canvass Prints to anyone looking to print a nice memory from one of their fishing expeditions.  In addition to printing your own pictures, it would also make an awesome gift for a fishing friend or relative.
