I've been tying Adams Dry and some Zebra Midges for the Caney and Hairs Ear Nymphs and Griffith's Gnat for the Smokies, along with a few soft hackles.

On the Clinch, I tie on anything that strikes my fancy, as long as it's a zebra midge. :)

Yep! I use my dry as an indicator, but I do like to try and get them to hit my dry by tying the best that I can. So far, I have had strikes on my BWO's and my Adam's Dries.

I've caught a number of fish using EHC's as indicators up there.

However, last fall I was fishing below the weir, and kept getting strikes on my foam indicator. As a joke, I tied on a size 10 Madame X. First cast a reasonable brown rocketed up through a couple feet of water and slammed that Madame X. It was the only fish on the dry that day, but it was enough.

I thought about tying on a large dry and realized I didn't have any:cool: I need to buy a set of 10's and 12's.
