Author Don Kirk will be at Fly South

this Saturday, September 20th at 10:00am

to sign copies of his latest book,

Hatches & Fly Patterns of the Great Smoky Mountains


Focusing on the Great Smoky Mountains, America’s most-visited national park, this book is full of useful information for fly fishers curious to learn more about flies and fly patterns. The book is a full color volume showing over 100 patterns such as the Tellico Nymph, Thunderhead, Smoky Mountain Sugar and Yallarhammar, plus information on dozens of past and present day fly tiers around the Great Smoky Mountains. “Hatches and Fly Patterns of the Great Smoky Mountains is a long time effort on my part with the help of a lot of people to document the rich history of fly fishing in the South,” says Kirk. “There is a lot more we do not know about the history of fly fishing and fly patterns in the region. I hope this book triggers an avalanche of interest that motivates others to dig up the scattered pieces of history before they are forever lost.”

Hatches & Fly Patterns of the Great Smoky Mountains – $24.95
