Hey the 6 string banjo has been around since the mid 1800s!!!

I don't have a 5 string banjo anymore. I sold it. I could get the chords down but not the pickin. By the way, I think a "real" banjo is a 4 string tenor banjo

The talk of wild bows in the general forum got me thinking of an older thought I had of doing a camping/fishing trip in the Smokies. Problem is, I have no idea where to even start. I'm open to suggestions from everything as to where to camp, what time of year, etc.

Do you want to stay in NC or TN? In NC, Bryson City is a good choice to start: several of the park's best streams on the Carolina side are within very easy reach from here, such as Deep Creek, Noland Creek, Forney Creek, Hazel Creek, etc. To reach Forney and the famous Hazel Creek requires a long hike in to the remote campgrounds or a boat ride across Fontana Lake.

Check out and call or e-mail them for some great information on fishing both sides of the park. Also, they run a 3-4 day fishing annual Spring flyfishing camping trip to Hazel Creek, guided or unguided. Price is reasonable and includes all meals, boat transportation, etc. If you take the guided option then every morning after breakfast you'll depart with your guide to fish and if not you explore on your own.

Man this trip is getting close! My dad, brother, and cousin are all tagging along. I got a rod from the Fiberglass Manifesto's rod loan program to try out on those little streams down there, got a game plan for the streams, the campsite, I just got my 10 day license for North Carolina ($10! What a deal!), and we're close enough that the extended forcasts are showing the dates we'll be down there (I know they can't accurately predict that far ahead).

I'm getting pumped! My daughter and I tested out a new tent a few weekends ago. Happened to be on a very rainy leaks.
