Default Simple Flies

I am trying to stock up on flies for spring. The most complex flies I like to tie are bh prince and bh tellico. I have PLENTY of bhpt's and bh hare's ears tied up, but I am looking for some more simple and effective flies like the pheasant ails that I can be working on. Any suggestions? I will be mainly fishing Raven Fork, the Tennessee side of the park, and a little bit of Citico and Tellico if it helps.

Some stoneflies and streamers...

These are mainly flies for warm water fish but the SJ worm variant on my blog has caught a fair number of trout. They were especially effective in Yellowstone for some reason.

If you're just looking for some easy ties, these are about as easy as they get. I'm not really into tying overly difficult flies, I'd rather be fishing.

Here's a direct link to the flies page on my blog.

Thanks guy. My neighbor is a guide and recommended that I tie some nymphs on a TMC 2457. I tied up some pheasant tails, hare's ears, and a couple others on them, and I really like how they look with the curved bodies. I have tied a few nyphs that are just like BHPT's but I tied them of yellow and red bucktail. I tried a couple on the trophy section the other day and they were hammering the bucktail ones, especially the red ones.

TJW. I like that idea of using the bucktail. Would you mind posting a picture or two? Thanks.
