I didn't really know where to put this, but have had over a dozen requests to get it online....so here it is, The Southern Appalachian Small Stream Flies Richardson's-Chest Fly Box - Thanks Louie for sending it in....

Southern Appalachian Small Stream Flies Richardson's-Chest Fly Box

I have had several takers for the list, and so far everyone has been pleased with the info. The list is not to be confused with a Hatch Chart. This is a list of the flies and sizes in my box. The list I have is in color- the different flies are color coded to seperate them from match the hatch and prospecting flies. Most all the flies listed are common flies that can be tied or bought anywhere.

Prospecting flies are used when nothing can be seen flying around, but the local fly shop or hatch chart for the area say they have been or should be. The prospecting fly is usually larger than the match the hatch fly, this helps the fish notice and recognize the fly as a recent food item, especially when the fish is not looking directly for that food item.

Match the Hatch flies should be used when that particular type of Mayfly, Caddis, or Terrestrial is present. Local fly shops and hatch charts can help to determine what fly is currently hatching.

Droppers indicate flies that I use to float on top the water as an attractor or prospector, with a fly tied to the hook or to a loop that has been tied into the fly for that special purpose. The attached fly usually is a nymph, wet fly or a pupa. Many different types of variations could be used. My own favorites are the Royal Wulff with a Flashback Hares Ear Nymph, Tan Elk Hair Caddis with LaFontaines Sparkle Green Pupa, or Beetle with a Wet Ant.

I personally like to use Terrestrials in the Appalachian streams that are larger than the morsels that fall into the water on a sporadic basis. I also like to use bigger flies when the water is stained, like the #10 Irresistible Wulff.

The above flies are not in any particular order, other than this is the way they are laid out in my own fly box trays. From my original list, few changes have been made. Although, from time to time, a new fly, finds a home in my box. An example would be the Rainbow Prince Nymph; I really like this fly. Choose what you like, use what you will, and disregard what you don't like. And build your own better box from here.

Nothing will make a better fisherman, than having confidence in the tools brought to the water's edge.

Best Fishes.

Louie
