Which 5 wet flies?
 
I am starting to stock up for summer time, and am going to put some wet flies in my arsenal for this summer. I really don't know where to start with them, so suggestions would be nice. I'll be in western wyoming, fishing for browns, bows, cutts, and the occasional whitefish. give me your 5 best wet flies. thanks.

the wet flies i fish most are:

Prince nymphs
tan and green scuds
pheasant tails
grey, green, and black hairs ears
green, red, copper, brassies

in that order ass most used to least used of the five. i have found that those all work all over the place so i am sure that those will do go for you in wyoming

hares ear, light cahill, partridge and orange, partridge and olive, and a picket pin will cover the basics.

AB Fisher- some of those flies are nymphs not wets. (brassie,prince nymph, scuds,pheasant tails) I think he wants standard wets to swing..

I like sandfly's selections, but I might add a dark cahill, the black gnat and one fly I'm never without, the peacock and partridge

maybe the Hornberg too
I think of it as a streamer, but I guess it's really a wet.... or maybe it's a dry ;)

yup, already do quite a bit of nymphing, looking to do some wet and soft hackle fishing, i've heard it will only increase my fish catching.

That's got to be one of the best. Got the two materials that look the best, IMO, peacock , and partridge. Got to tie some of those. What size?
Whoops didn't mean to hijack. I just got excited.

I tie and fish the peacock and partridge to match the emergence of the zebra caddis. A dominant hatch on my home river. Size 12
