My favorite flies are the EHC (with deer hair), brown hackle peacock, wooly bugger in olive/black, black/black, and all white during the herring kill. I tie what I call a Simple Simon- tail from any dark feather I find in the backyard, tan dubbing, and two or three turns of brown or ginger hackle. I have fished the SS on the Hiwassee, the Tellico and tribs, and the Park. I started out with a parachute Adams but figured the fish couldn't see the wings from underwater. So.....I left it off. I experiment with some stuff for the fun of it and see if it works.
