Default Streamers

Recently I've become enamored with tying streamers, especially articulated ones, but that is for later in the post.

What are some of everyones favorite streamers and what sizes? I want to start filling a streamer box with baitfish imitatiions. I realy like matuka style patterns and need to work on some muddlers but what else is good.

I really like some of the Kelly Galloup flies are they worth a shot at tying? I think they look super productive.

I'm particularly after sculpin and darter type patterns.

Moving on, When tying a matuka should I tie in one or two hackles for the tail and back? Also, i have been stripping the barbs off of the bottom side of the stem so it lies flatter, should I continue that?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
