Stoneflies are certainly one group of insects you should imitate
when you are fly fishing the streams of  Great Smoky Mountains
National Park. Stoneflies are present in all the streams and in very
abundant quantities. Selecting a fly to imitate them is a much
simpler process that selecting flies to imitate mayflies or
caddisflies. They have only two stages of life anglers are interested
in - the
nymph and the adult.

By far
the most important stage to imitate is the nymph. That's
because the nymphs crawl out of the water to hatch. The only time
the adults are going to be on the water is when the female
deposits here eggs or when the male falls into the water after
completing his function in life. Depending on the species, the egg
laying often occurs during the night.
