Re: Overwhelmed with flies!!!!!!!!
Cliff's suggestions are right-on but to make it really simple is to think basic black: Get a few Muddler Minnows, a couple of black Woolly Buggers, a wet Black Gnat or two and, for a change in colors, a Grey Ghost.
By the way, the reason there are so many flies is for one of two reasons: (1) to make a personal statement by leaving to history the greatest fly ever made, or (2) to make money. My fly is called, Doug's Dirty Dumb-Dumb; unfortunately, it will not catch fish!
