Too many variable here.

Smokies? BHPT

Tailwaters? Zebra Midge

Ponds? Yellow/ Chartreuse Popper

BHPT of Bead Head Hair's Ear
Good question

Ditto what Gerry said!

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.

smokies- BHPT

anywhere else- beadhead black with rubber legs wooly bugger no doubt

The wooly will catch anything anywhere.

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.:biggrin:

I gotta agree witht the BHPT. Either that or a wet hackle, I do enjoy swinging a wet-fly

Got to stick to dry fly fishing and in the park that would be a yellow EHC

Black size 20 beadhead zebra midge. Cheap and easy to tie but irresistible to trout everywhere.

Parachute Adams ;)

Hey, what does a 12 Orange Palmer with a big fluffy Orange Z-Yarn tail look like?

11-24-2008, 10:26 PM
blue wing olive, because if I can only choose 1 fly, it sure as **** will be a dry fly.

Just my opinion but I do like Bead Head Hair's Ear

My favorite trout fly for TN/NC would have to be the Sheepfly. This thing's a trout magnet. It's basically an Adam's wet fly, but the tail is tweaked a bit...instead of grizzly and brown its just simply brown. Awesome fly.

A Black rubber legged wooly bugger with lots of krystal flash. Fish will hit it out of instinct.
