Hey folks glad to find this forum. I am 35, born and raised in southwest Virginia on Claytor Lake and fishing Smith Mountain. I have been tournament fishing hard for about 4 years and run a Thursday night weekly series here currently. I am a paramedic by trade for the last 15 years but am also a full time nursing student. My plans are to finish nursing school and take my new found freedom to Chattanooga and learn the mighty tn river better. I have fished south holston (an hour from home now), chickamauga a few times, and ky lake. I look forward to learning all I can, maybe passing along something helpful, and meeting new fishing buddies for the future.
