    As for drys, sulfurs are almost always one recommended by the local fly shops this time of year for both streams. You might want to check in with Eddie at http://www.flyshopoftn.com/ in Johnson City.

    I've yet to use the technique, but that's about to change after reading ChemEAngler's "SoHo Weekend" post today

    Great idea. Sulphur Dun on top with a pt, or split case nymph, or rockhold sulphur emerger, or any other mayfly imitation you want to fish. Get out on a warm sunny day and you're gonna have a blast right now.
