Default Orange EHC

I will second the orange EHC size 14. Black or tan body as well. Definitely a killer.

Not sure about the future, but can say for certain from 5:00 to 6:15 last night in the Smokies the green weenie was the soup of the day!

I remember fishing the Clinch a couple falls ago with a size 12 EHC, orange, and a size 16 BHPT dropped off it. I caught a pile of fish that day. All the rainbows were caught on the dropper and all the browns were caught on the dry. It was strange the way they were each keyed into something different. I need to get caught up with work so I can get back out there while the fools are watching football.

I honestly believe most of the time stealth and a good presentation at the proper depth is more important than the particular pattern. i do like terrestrials until winter really sets in. Their isn't much hatching this time of year. I also down size my dry flies and nymphs this time of yea. It seems to help with the low clear water conditions you are faced with most of the time. Also with most aquatic insects are on a yearly cycle, The nymphs that were laid this spring and summer are still small and growing at this stage in their life cycle.
