The 'Hooch

I stopped and took this picture of Georgia's most famous river on my way home from work a couple of weeks ago. It happened to be one of the few days in the past several months where it actually wasn't raining.

While walking over to the river, I took this shot in honor of Foster.

I took my dog down there over the summer and introduced my wife to the majesty of Jones Bridge Park. It seems strange that I played 5-year-old soccer, had my first job, and voted all at the same place.

Ever done any fly fishing in the 'Hooch? My dad has a lot of fun with it.

Thanks for the great photo. Man, I love that river. I have a lot of great fly fishing memories from the upper Hooch and it brought them all back. Too bad I haven't been able to get up there in the last couple of years. Now I am inspired to return in the spring!

I'm sitting here in my office, looking out at the Chattahoochee as it flows south. Trip that shot of yours looks as if it could have been taken on the Alabama side facing east towards my side here in Columbus.

Dig the Blucher mocs too.

Unfortunately, I have not gotten into fly fishing. It does seem a bit more appealing than regular fishing, though. A friend of mine from grad school said that he used to go fly fishing in the Chattahoochee every day after work during the spring and summer. He would go where the river crosses under I-285, which is where this picture was taken.
