Basics of Fly Fishing - Trout Food Series - Dobsonflies, Fishflies and
Alderflies:
Next in our list of important trout foods in Great Smoky Mountains National Park are
the
dobsonflies, fishflies and alderflies. There are actually quite a few of these
aquatic insects in the streams of the park but I have to list them near the bottom of
the list in terms of their importance as a trout food. The Dobsonfly is eaten mostly in
its early stage of life that's called a hellgrammite. It is the most important of the
three insects I lumped together in this group.

best streams in the park.
