What are your two most fish-catching fly materials of all time?
 
I was tying some flies today and thought about this. I don't think there is any question in my mind that peacock herl and marabou have been tops for me.
How about you?

Saddle hackle & floss on my wet flies;

Stripped quill and hackle on my dries;

Dubbed fur & slate mallard wings are an alternate choice for the dry flies. I had to make it complicated because I think my streamer fly fishing is catching up to the dry fly fishing in numbers of fish caught.

Orange Crackle Back - Peacock herl and Punch yarn

Hook - Size #10/12
Thread - Black
Shellback - Peacock Herl
Body - you can use Uni-thread, punch yarn, (orange is my favorite color) Hackle - Full body palmered

Note: you can add lead for weight .025 (5 to 8 wraps)

I will go with Bigdog and say pecock herl and marabou. Peacock binging the number one by a long shot for me.

Since I said material, you guys that said "hooks" really meant "steel" right? LOL!
Dry fly hackle probably doesn't count because it's main purpose in my mind is to float the fly, not attract the fish.
What I meant was the two materials that are most ATTRACTIVE to fish! That probably leaves out hooks and dry fly hackle.
