    In Middle Tennessee the lake fly fishing is for panfish, bass, or stripers. Wooly Buggers are good for all; Stripers go for large streamers like Clouser Minnows.

    In tailwaters, most common combination is a scud, copper john, or pheasant tail under an Elk Hair Caddis as an indicator. Big browns in the tailwaters go for streamers like WB or other good monnow imitations.

    Lakes - Streamers,Buggers and Clousers
    Streams - Buggers and Clousers
    BH Patterns and Streamers
    Dry Fly - Adams Parachute or Elk Hair Caddis
    Caddis - BH Caddis Larva or Elk Hair
    Hoppers - Para Hopper
    Nymph - Pheasant Tail or Hares Ear (BH)

    My all around favorite pattern I like is one I tie myself.
    It's called a killer caddis. I use a Daiichi 1250 BL hook,
    caddis beads(small), and haretron. Used as a dropper it's
    dynamite in spring creeks and tailwaters. Pattern is as follows:

    Hook - D1250BL #14 - #16
    Tag - Caddis Green Dubbing
    Body - 4 to 5 Caddis Green Beads
    Head - Black Haretron (Dubbing Loop)

    You can tie variations galor with the availability of
    beads and dubbing. I just prefer caddis green because
    of where I use it.

    My two best can be fished dry, wet as a nymph, and as streamers or swimming wet... Kennebago Muddler (dry makes a great Drake cripple) and the Picket Pin. They also work everywhere, and don't let anyone tell ya different!
