    I PM'd you last November when I was down in Clintwood visiting my grandparents, I went to the freezing Flannigan for nothing. Cool place lots of trout fishing going on. Lots of people fishing for trout. O well good luck, Clintwood is small but I'm sure you can find some people to fish with. When I was there the Pound river was bone dry. I hope it has some water in it now.

    i've caught a lot of nice channels out of flannagan. many over 10 and one 15. the trouble is flatheads. i had one good one on about a month ago put it threw the hook, thats when i learned to use the sharpest hooks i can find. it hit on a 7in warmouth so i know it had to be a good fish, the way it felt it had to be atleast a 30. i just hope i didnt ruin my luck with that fish :confused2:

    but thanks alot man, im gonna keep fishin it & eventually the fish gods will reward me haha
