Default Flies for Turneffe

I'm spending a week chasing bones and permit at Turneffe in July. I fished there a few years ago, mostly with bitters, and had tons of success. Any suggestions for other flies I should have in my box. Thanks.

Last trip to Ambergris the bones loved my Kwan-style flies especially the bead chain ones when they were in really skinny water. As you probably know, just about any good fly placed well in front of a Belize bone stands a good chance of being eaten. The next trip to Caulker, in deeper water, a fuzzy gotcha type worked better.

Haven't yet had the chance to throw at a permit, but I always carry merkins, just in case.
