The Holston River is where I grew up as a child. I have been fortunate to always have the opportunity to relive these great experiences. The Holston river starts in Virginia and runs through East Tennessee until it meets the French Broad river in Knoxville. These two rivers join to become the Tennessee river. The Holston River divides Grainger County (where I live) and Jefferson County. The water is cold and clear and is perfect for a lazy summer afternoon. I have fished the river all of my life forthe sport fish here. Trout and smallmouth bass are in abundance, but my favorite are the "redeye". These small bass are the toughest fighting fish in the river ounce for ounce. They seldom get over 1 lb. so use ultralight gear and 4 lb. test for the most enjoyment. When the fishing is off I e...

The end of March brings the harbinger of Spring around the Clinch Mountains. Morels have started showing up in the low areas this week. I was able to transplant  the first ones of this year. They were moved from their cold damp beds to the heat of my cast iron skillet. I will be out again this week looking in a few higher areas around poplars & oaks. Don't miss out on this great opportunity, it comes but once a year.

Located on the Holston River in Grainger County is East Tennessee's newest airpark. The landing strip is 3,000 ft. long and has home sites adjacent to it for licensed pilots. A golf course and restaurant are planned for the next phase. There is also 4,000 ft. of river frontage that features great trout fishing. You can drive into Knoxville in less than 25 minutes, or fly over the Great Smoky Mt. in less that 10 minutes. If you own a plane and enjoy flying, be sure to check our newest development out!  http://www.hgre.net

Sarting in December I get ready to hike and enjoy the Clinch Mt. range. These beautiful unspoiled and less traveled peaks run through Grainger County. I particularly enjoy the solitude of roaming these mountains as I never see anyone. Clinch Mt. is a wild mountain range that starts at Signal Point in Blaine,TN and goes into Virginia. Signal Point was a key position in the war between the states as Knoxville can be seen from from this vista. These hikes also give me a different perspective of my listings in relation to their surroundings. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park has many trails and much easier access but I will stick with the wild game paths of my Clinch Mountains.
