"Tight-Lipped" In North Carolina

Is there something that western North Carolina fly fishers don’t want to share with the hungering masses of fly fishers? Could it be that the multitude of streams and the absence of anglers makes a difference? In The New York Times, Christopher Percy Collier pens a short but sweet guide for trout fishers wanting to explore the area. “‘In many instances, the hatches in western North Carolina are not as dense as those on Western rivers,’ Mr. Weldon said. Therefore, he explained, the trout are largely opportunistic feeders, meaning that flies needn’t be dead ringers for the real thing, with patterns tending toward time-tested conglomerations of feathers and yarn.”
