Well, those are complicated to tie and are worth more than a little dry fly, so how about 6 or 8 of them for the 16 to 18 dry flies. I am thinking size 6 - 8 in blue, olive or yellow.

I can definitely tie up some parachutes if that's what you like. A 16 is usually the smallest parachute I tie. On the 18s, 20s and 22s I usually tie a CDC comparadun. I find it hard to work with the parachute hackle in those small sizes. I also tie an elk & cdc caddis pattern that I'm pretty proud of.

Sounds like you are looking more for searching flies as opposed to more exact copies of a particular hatch?
