Default One fly too catch them all

One fly to catch them all...so what is your pattern that you use for almost every type of fishing you do. I have to say the Clouser is mine. With the number of species I've caught on it, its becoming my fave fly. Whats yours?

I've caught tons on clousers too, but probably more on bugger variations. Some are as simple as a marabou tail, bead chain eyes, and chenille wrapping the shank and eyes for a body.

Big Cliff makes a great point! buggers are a killer fly and one of the 1st you should learn to tie. they catch just as much as a clouser for sure! I was using a brown bugger last week and I caught 2 smallies and 3 rock bass and a few river chubs in a couple hours. I figured they think it was a crayfish or something. I am going out tomorow and using the same brown bugger to start with and adjust from there, keep everyone posted with pics. steelies are coming soon but I am going for bass and gills cause its gonne be 80 degrees.

I would have to agree with Cliff. My main fly this past year was a #10 green
WB. I decided to tie them with green or black bead chain eyes, and
wrapped the marabou up the shank as the body. A little green ice dubbing
as a collar, and these babies caught everything from trout to LMB/SMB,
perch, and even bluegill that weren't much bigger than the fly !

Lefty Kreh wrote an article about his main flies, and said that if were
stranded on an island with just one fly, it would be a Wooley Bugger.

Mr.Copper is my most productive streamer on Trout, this streamer has landed us the most Trophy's in five years todate and even catches Salmon. Highly reflective, flexible and dosn't shrink like marabou and can be seen in stained waters!
