LOL, may God have mercy on my soul too, Kerry. I'm wading into deeper water.
The granddaddy fly from the father of American dry fly fishing, Theodore Gordon.
I'll do the "Quill Gordon", size 14. Early April hatch in the East. Can't find if we have a hatch of the Quill Gordon in the West.
Here's a little reading. Enjoy.

"In 1890, when Gordon turned 36, American fly fishermen were still wedded to the wet fly. Gordon fished wet too, but unlike many of his fellows, he fished upstream, and he noticed that trout would take the fly avidly in the few moments that it floated at the beginning of a cast. This prompted him to write to F.M. Halford, who responded by sending him a packet of dry flies. Gordon soon discovered that there were two problems with Halford's flies: first, they imitated English insects; and second, they were designed for the smooth currents of English chalk streams, rather than the rush and tumble of the Neversink. He had some help from G.E.M. Skues, who sent him quantities of capes, but in the end Gordon began to design his own patterns, using stiffer hackles than his English models. His most famous pattern was the Quill Gordon, the fly that gave American fly-tiers the confidence to break away from the shadow of the English school. Theodore Gordon also experimented with what may have been the first hairwing fly pattern in the late nineteenth century. His intention was to tie a better pike fly, but he found, incidentally, that the pattern would catch other game fish, including salmon."

Thanks to Mark for all of the help that he gave me in the background.
