I can almost mirror Byron's fishing report for the Smokies to my local mountain stream. Pretty much the hatches are the same, water temps are the same, water flows may differ a little bit from time to time but thats about it. So my question is: when do the first hatches come out and what are they usually? I cant wait until they hatch, so I need to get tying! Thanks guys.

Just noticed that the on-line catalogue has a book on smoky mountain fly patterns and hatches!

I got a copy of this book from LRO years ago. It is a great little book and I would highly recommend getting one. It is very handy to refer to from time to time. It tells you about every important hatch that you need to know about and gives some good patterns that match these hatches.
