Invicta Flies - Big South Fork, Kentucky

If you know anyone who needs a lesson in humility, take them to the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River. Giant boulders and towering cliffs above the wide warm-water river makes all who venture there feel like an ant. The river has many moods, from slack-water pools to class IV rapids, waterfalls and dry rock beds. Many species can be found here, smallmouths the most prominent. Look in the right place and you may get a crack at some of largest largemouth bass you'll ever see. A snakebite kit is not out of line here, as rattlesnakes and cottonmouths inhabit the area.
