Insects and other foods the trout may be eating:
1.   Blue-winged Olives
2.   Little Black Winter Stoneflies
3.   Streamers - matching sculpin, baitfish and small crayfish
4.   Midges

Recent additions to the website:
We have made a little progress on the "Planning" section of this website. We have
added some basic information about "Where To Stay" and a couple of "Other Park
Things To See And Do". There are still dozens of images to post, much left to write
and much more editing to do, but we wanted you to see that we really intend to
finish this part of the site before this year's fishing season gets into a full steam
ahead status.

Basics of Fly Fishing - Trout Food Series - Mayflies - Part 2
This will continue the "common sense approach" to the mayflies that exist in the
streams of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Part two gets into how you go
about successfully fishing the mayfly hatches that will start in the near future. We
are doing our very best to take all the complexities out of this series on trout food,
so that even a beginner can get maximum benefit from the information provided.

I will again emphasize that if you haven't already done so, you should go back and
review the first few basic articles on mayflies. Yesterday's segment
links these
articles, so you can easily review them. We want these articles to actually help you
catch more trout.

Today's article continues
