April 24, 2018



As Spring makes its way to the high country, it is the perfect time to start getting up into some higher elevation streams. We have put together a list of our fly box staples for blue lining in the Appalachian Mountains. Whether you're on a small creek or fishing the Watagua or South Holsten in T.N. these nymph and dry flies will give you a delicate presentation and deliver what the fish are feeding on.

Quick tip: Purchasing nymphs/midges that are tied with a tungsten bead are heavier and able penetrate water columns quicker, allowing you to fish a wider range of depths.
