    For a minute there I thought we were back in the "I Hate the Smokies" thread...

    First you find the gear, then you buy the gear, then you take it to the mountains, then you be very, very, sneaky and you catch fish. But obviously, if you can't find the gear...
    Oh yeah? Well:

    And what flies should my fly box contain multiples of for the Caney? These, and what others?

    Zebra midges
    BHPTs
    Scuds
    Wooly buggers
    EHCs
    Did yuo ever end up getting and midges, 'tails, or scuds? When are you planning on going next? Might find some help on the river this weekend.

    As of current I have two BH black zebra midges, one BH chocolate midge, and a regular cream midge. I've got 3 BHPTs I think all in copper, and an olive and tan scud.

    I won't be going this weekend, my weekend is packed. I usually walk down a bit from the stairs they just built. And yes I'm still using the auto reel, for now.
