Call me crazy but I like a mayfly in some of these streams in North Georgia, and gotta love a EHC.
#20 BWO parachute style with a sparkle Baetis emerger dropper.

Favorite? Well it's not my "go to" fly or "skunk deterrent", but I ablsolutely love fishing a hopper. I've got a lot of trophy trout off of hoppers in North Georgia streams. I guess it's the old bass fisherman in me, because they don't sip these big bugs. Plus you can slap a dropper on them and catch those picky fish.

Many of the flies above are my starter flies to just get a few fish to hand, but then I go for big boys. A muddler minnow fished downstream with a split shot is best option I've thrown for big trout. I've had them almost yank the rod out of my hand.
It's not as graceful as throwing an EHK on 2wt, but it'll get that adrenaline pumping!
