If would depend on whether I'm fishing for my dinner or just for fun and if it was only 1 single fly or one type of fly. Nymphs are more productive but dries are more fun. If it was a nymph prob. a cased caddis pattern I like and if it was a dry, prob. a parachute adams.

That's another of those "Depends on" questions.
If I want to catch a lot of fish, a Pheasant Tail #18.
If I want to catch fewer fish and have more fun, a Griffiths Gnat #22.
There's always some midges hatching year round.
By more fun I mean surface fishing. Love to watch em take the fly.
No fair using a dropper on this poll, eh?

Myself, I'd choose a streamer. Exact choice would have to be a JJ Special. It's wooly bugger with a brown and yellow marabou tail, brown chenile body, yellow rubber legs, and grizzly hackle and copper wire ribbing.
Hi Davo,

Is this the JJ special you are talking about or do you like a bead head version?

I'm with Fyshstykr, a para Adams, but probably in a #16.

Second choice would be a #14 Partridge and Yellow soft hackle (they're close in terms of productivity for me); the soft hackle fished as Greenwood describes.

For post-heavy rain, tea-colored water, a Chernobyl Ant in #10 (black body/cream underbody/red thread). A lot of guys up here won't fish right after a heavy rain, but I find that the ant is almost a guaranteed fish-getter in those conditions (plus, I get to fish a lot of water with no one else around!)
