Re: October patterns
October is probably my favorite time of year in the Smokies! The flies that have usually been kind to me are mostly smaller stuff. GRHE's and PT's for nymphs (#16-#20) and small para adams and BWO's (#16-#22) for dries. Also, be absolutely sure to have some October Caddis patterns with you. The one I use is basically an orange EHC in a #12. The fish will hit these hard all day!
