    Mostly tungsten beads for me although I usually undersize the bead and keep the fly small when using tungsten in a dry/dropper. If I'm having a hard time keeping the dry fly floating, I either go up...

    If I plan on taking any pictures, I always carry a net. It is much easier on the fish if you leave them in the net (rubber bag is best as mentioned above) and keep them in the water while getting...

    As far as seeing the strike...

    I typically do not use an indicator although I use some indicator tippet at times ("Euro" style). I ALWAYS carry one with me though and add it to the leader if I'm fishing more than 15-20 feet out...

    Whether to get close or stay farther back really depends on the fish and where it is sitting. I always get as close as possible to a big fish but some are sitting in spots that simply won't allow...

    I always try to keep my leaders in the Smokies the length of the rod or less. Preferably a little less. That makes high sticking easier. Stick with 4x or 5x for any dry flies #10 or smaller under...

    The spawn for this year is probably mostly shot. Matt Kulp believes that recruitment from the spawn begins to be impacted at flows of around 1,000 cfs on Little River. We just went MUCH higher than...

    That is a good high water option if you like small brushy streams and small wild rainbows. There are definitely at least a few fish there.

    Most of the small streams will be fishable to varying...

    Add some #12-#18 Parachute Adams. Still lots of dark bugs hatching since this month has been so cool. Also add some caddis pupa to your list of flies and you should be set. Good luck!
