all i have to say,
THANK YOU guys, i just went through most of the posts looking up any FLY's that did not ring a bell as being one in my box. and while getting ready to place a new order online for more flies my order just went from about 60 to 100 Flies

but to get back on topic of this thread: *(i've never used Streamers so ill skip that)
my top 3 are: *(for So.Cal)
1. Elk hair Caddids (with some black, brown or tan color in it)
2. Humpty RED or YELLOW
3. Wulff Royal RED or YELLOW w/some black in it
4. Red/Yellow Stimulators tied vs Parachute Adams

1. Gold ribbed hares ear
2. Pheasant tail
3. Olive wooly bugger (bead head)
4. Yellow stimulator


Definitely the four flies I fall back on. If I'm not catching something on these I'm probably getting skunked.

Great responses and great ideas from everyone!

Maybe 4 flies per season.. but I couldn't pick 4 flies I'd use all year round.

I can't imagine not having hoppers in September, or using them in January..
