    Default Re: Name Your Trout Top Ten Nymph & Dry Flies

    Quite honestly, I really don't fish with 20 fly patterns but here is my list, pretty much the usual boring suspects:

    Wets:
    Pheasant tail (bead head/flashback) and unweighted
    Copper John (red), also use green when Caddis are active
    Prince nymph
    Hare's ear
    Stone fly (20-inched) makes a nice attractor
    RS-2
    BWO Emerger
    Wolly Bugger (Barr's Slump Buster)

    Dries:
    Parachute adams
    Elk Hair Caddis
    Tricos
    Plan to try the Barr's Vis-a-Dun this year based on Landon Mayer's recommendation as his "#1 dry fly"

    Oh, I was going to mention that I know a fellow who fishes with only 3 flies: Parachute Adams, Elk Hair Caddis and pheasant tails. He certainly catches more fish than myself or some of my buds. Maybe not as much fun though.

    In no particular order, and for trout. I've probably forgotten something...

    Nymphs:

    Blue Assassin
    Hare's Ear
    Prince Nymph
    Copper John
    Beadhead chironomid nymph w/ peacock herl thorax
    Czech Nymph
    Swift River Serendipity
    Tiny scuds
    Sunken ant
    Zebra Midge

    Dries:

    Elk Hair Caddis
    Parachute Adams
    Grey Wolf
    Usual
    Light Cahill
    Stimulator
    Hoppers
    Flying ants
    Chubby Chernobyl
    Goddard caddis


    I am 100% certain that these two lists will change over the next 12 months, so take with a grain of salt.
    Cheers,
