Here’s your chance to cast a line into a crystal clear trout stream just an hour from Nashville, TN. This 1/2 day trip begins well before sunrise with a hardy breakfast prepared by the fire and a fishing report. Once there is enough sun light to see, everyone takes their place on the river. Anticipation rising with the light mist, you will find it easy to rest, whether you catch a fish or not.
