    Default Which 5 wet flies?

    I am starting to stock up for summer time, and am going to put some wet flies in my arsenal for this summer. I really don't know where to start with them, so suggestions would be nice. I'll be in western wyoming, fishing for browns, bows, cutts, and the occasional whitefish. give me your 5 best wet flies. thanks.

    the wet flies i fish most are:

    Prince nymphs
    tan and green scuds
    pheasant tails
    grey, green, and black hairs ears
    green, red, copper, brassies

    in that order ass most used to least used of the five. i have found that those all work all over the place so i am sure that those will do go for you in wyoming

    hares ear, light cahill, partridge and orange, partridge and olive, and a picket pin will cover the basics.

    AB Fisher- some of those flies are nymphs not wets. (brassie,prince nymph, scuds,pheasant tails) I think he wants standard wets to swing..

    I like sandfly's selections, but I might add a dark cahill, the black gnat and one fly I'm never without, the peacock and partridge



    maybe the Hornberg too
    I think of it as a streamer, but I guess it's really a wet.... or maybe it's a dry

    That's got to be one of the best. Got the two materials that look the best, IMO, peacock , and partridge. Got to tie some of those. What size?
    Whoops didn't mean to hijack. I just got excited.

    I tie and fish the peacock and partridge to match the emergence of the zebra caddis. A dominant hatch on my home river. Size 12
