Thanks for your advice, Denduke! I may not set the new record for largest brown, just hoping to not get skunked. I really appreciate the pics and help!

I havent fished Idaho yet, that is still on the bucket list. Ive fished Montana and Wyoming though! Were not going out west this year, so looking for some locations closer to home besides the Smokies!

Just want to echo Rick- the flies are all great! Thank you all for putting in the time to tie (especially those who tied more than 1!) Also, thanks BB for putting together a great mix! It is always a great day to get a box of new flies from you all!

What type of UV resin/light do you use, J-Kno? Ive been trying to find something that works well, but budget friendly. Loon Outdoors looks like it has a decent set-up, but looks like there are multiple types of resins. (More resins = more $$)

Hah thanks, BB! Im still learning so I have a ways to go...

Dai-Riki size 14
Red ice dubbing for the butt
Yellow dubbing for the thorax
Elk hair for wings
Grizzly hackle (a little bit larger than size 14, but helps the fly sit high in rough waters)
UTC 70 thread

This yellow sally is always my go-to for the Smokies. Ive even fished it in Montana when I was out of stimulators and did pretty well!
