Thanks Travis, but I'm still new at the whole tying thing..I have much much to learn! As for the softhackles on the Clinch..I've heard several stories of two or three guys who won't throw anything but them on the Clinch in the spring. I'm sure the PT softhackle would be fine, but the fly I'm hearing that works well is a yellow softhackle. Which would make sense. A sulphur cripple caught in the film!

The only, lemme repeat, the only softhackle I've ever had any success with is Hugh's Rockhold. I'm with Waterwolf and refuse to fish um!

Jose,
Thanks. I don't know yet when I will be tying, but you should come out at any time you have an opportunity. There will be lots of more qualified people there to teach you to tie sulfur patterns including plenty of other members like Flyman, Fishermansfly, and others.

Mihai,
Thanks for the vote of confidence that I may be able to help you in the Smokies. However, the truth is that very little of my fishing is in the mountains, but I need to correct that habit. There are always people on here looking for somebody to meet up with, and I imagine that if you start a thread looking for a fishing partner and the dates you will be here you will get some responses. Keep an eye on this message board and Byron's fishing report for the latest information on what is hatching. Another option is to contact Hugh Hartsell regarding a guided trip. He will set you on the correct path and help you to get acquainted to the area and fishing techniques. His website is below:
