    Smile If you could only use ONE

    Hey everybody! Just wanted to see what everyone would use if they could only choose just ONE fly to use, and why you would pick that one. Looking foward to hearing what yall would do. Post a pic if you'd like.
    Thanks.

    Too many variable here.

    Smokies? BHPT

    Tailwaters? Zebra Midge

    Ponds? Yellow/ Chartreuse Popper

    GSMNP - wooly bugger
    Tailwater - wooly bugger
    Anywhere else - wooly bugger

    That is if I had to choose only one. Might not catch a ton of fish, but you sure can put the big meat on the table.

    If the objective was to catch fish every time, BHPT. On the other hand, I would hate to think of never fishing a dry. I think I would go with a Parachute Adams and realize that there would be some "dry" days. Catching fish is fun - catching fish on a dry is a thrill.
