Peewee you tie some of the best looking, fish catching flies on this board, so unless your camera is broken how about lets see some of them.

Here is one that I have found the painted fish seem to like,
Adams Variant size 12 and 14
Tail: Golden pheasant
Body: Yellow ostrich, orange also works
Hackle: Brown and Grizzly
Wing: Yellow Poly

Plumbob, are you talking about your trip down to norther VA? That's not the Smokeys. To get to the Smokeys, you have to go on down to Cherokee.

Anyway, anywhere in the southern Appalachians in Oct., you only need 2 flies. An orange palmer on top, and a prince dropper. The prince isn't particularly a southeastern fly, but the orange palmer is:

Image

Hook: Std. dry fly, 12-14 (no need to go smaller)
Thread: Orange
Tail: Golden Pheasant tippet
Body: Bright orange dubbing (rabbit here)
Hackle: Grizzly, 1 size small
(I used grizzly dyed ginger here, but that's a discontinued color in Whiting saddles.)
