That would be a nice experience for me. I may try to make it this year. I've seen few heavy hatches so far: I saw a hatch of blue quills on the Elk in WV, a large hatch of BWO's on the Caney, and that's about it for large single fly hatches. I did see some really good hatches in the Smokies but they contained multiple species of flies. I think the neatest hatches were definitely in the Smokies. I've never seen so many different kinds of flies at once.
