"It's gin clear," said Patrick Sessoms, when I asked about water color on the Watagua River prior to a photo shoot earlier this summer. He wasn't kidding. The ice-cold tail water and the hot summer air causes a lot of fog to linger on the stream late into the morning making for dramatic photo conditions. Of course landing a few fish was key too. What good is a photo setting if the talent doesn't show up? Luckily Sessoms knows a thing or two about that water and hauled a few in, like this one, he releases a back into river, much of which flows through the Cherokee National Forest in North Carolina and Tennessee.
