You guys in GA? Me too, N. Ga. I love fly fishing, just don't have the time to do it. Consequently I have a beautiful 5 wt for sale that I bought from a guide a few years ago and never used. Orvis Trident TL Mid-flex 6.5, 8.6"....A Christmas gift to yourself?
Before we started stocking only the small spring fed mountain streams were cold enough through the summer to support Brookies in Georgia, which are basically the only trout native east of the Mississippi. Rainbow were imported from Washington state and Browns are native to Europe. Both of which would be considered invasive species if they were not so delicious and fun to catch.
Any John Gierach fans here? Just one of the best trout and fly-fishing writers around.
So long as you dispatch it with a machete, then it would be ok.
