Which fly would you choose
 
If you could pick just one fly to fish with for the next year which would you chose?

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.

It would either be a picket pin or a kennebago muddler because they can both be fished very effectively as 'any of the above'...

Give me something like a soft-hackle hare's ear in a size 14 or 16 and I'll be content for the day. Need to go deep like a nymph? ..... add a split shot or two. Surface? ......grease it up and fish it like a drowned dry. Need to work the riffles and around snags?.....just work it like a streamer; sometimes I think the trout take it for a little bait fish anyway - especially if it's hackled fairly heavy and fished on the swing! The best way? ......cast it upstream.....dead drift it through the seams and let it rise and swing on the end of the drift! .....Very versatile! And, that's my 2 cents!

I know I would catch fewer fish but I don't think I could fish subsurface for a year straight so I'd have to go with a dry attractor of some sort. Maybe a green and copper triple double in a 14 or 16.

Fishing the salt 90% of the time i would have to go with a 3" to 4" clouser all white, pearl flashabou, small lead eyes. This is my goto fly and will catch about anything salty.

Sorry Jim I know this pole is mainly a freshwater topic. But if I'm not mistaken you did pick a Streamer. LOL. Thanks for sharing

I'd go with a biot midge of some kind.
