Default Re: Name Your Trout Top Ten Nymph & Dry Flies

Quite honestly, I really don't fish with 20 fly patterns but here is my list, pretty much the usual boring suspects:

Wets:
Pheasant tail (bead head/flashback) and unweighted
Copper John (red), also use green when Caddis are active
Prince nymph
Hare's ear
Stone fly (20-inched) makes a nice attractor
RS-2
BWO Emerger
Wolly Bugger (Barr's Slump Buster)

Dries:
Parachute adams
Elk Hair Caddis
Tricos
Plan to try the Barr's Vis-a-Dun this year based on Landon Mayer's recommendation as his "#1 dry fly"

Oh, I was going to mention that I know a fellow who fishes with only 3 flies: Parachute Adams, Elk Hair Caddis and pheasant tails. He certainly catches more fish than myself or some of my buds. Maybe not as much fun though.

In no particular order, and for trout. I've probably forgotten something...

Nymphs:

Blue Assassin
Hare's Ear
Prince Nymph
Copper John
Beadhead chironomid nymph w/ peacock herl thorax
Czech Nymph
Swift River Serendipity
Tiny scuds
Sunken ant
Zebra Midge

Dries:

Elk Hair Caddis
Parachute Adams
Grey Wolf
Usual
Light Cahill
Stimulator
Hoppers
Flying ants
Chubby Chernobyl
Goddard caddis


I am 100% certain that these two lists will change over the next 12 months, so take with a grain of salt.
