Default What Size Flies For 1 to 1-1/2 lb Brook Trout?

I'm fishing in a pond close to home that is known for 1 lb + brook trout and are fairly simple to get with spinning gear.

However, with the fly rod, I'm getting mostly "nuisance" hits by ~ 6" trout.

I currently have a stock of a couple of dozen #12 flies in the preferred local patterns (as recommended by a local) but I'm starting to believe a # 12 is too small.

Opinions?

Thanks.

Jamie.
