The best book I have encounted that really helps out identifing Mayflies, Caddis, and Stoneflies is the Hatch Guide For New England Streams by Thomas Ames, Jr.

Cost $20.00.

Even though the title is "New England Streams" if you advance it a week or two it should work for the Smokie streams.

It not only provides you a photo of the hatch, but it also makes recommendations to it's imatation and pattern for each one.

Well worth the double saw-buck.

Good luck.
