    All look like that they will catch trout. I'm sure that in the right conditions you could get panfish and bass with them.

    That fly on the bottom right of the last photo is a jig. In its coloration, it can be dead drifted as a crawdad pattern.

    Panfish are usually very forgiving when it comes to fishing things properly. That said, the black fly in your pictures looks similar to a small wooly bugger (does it have another name?) and can be fished sub-surface to imitate a small fish, leech, or something similar. So you can cast it out and strip it back to you at various speeds of retrieve.

    The other three on the white pad look like dries so you'd cast them out over the fish to imitate insects that have landed on the water. The hackle on the middle two looks sparse so I wonder how well they will float. If they sink the panfish might take them anyways.

    It could be good to get some foam flies and small poppers. Panfish and bass love them and they float forever. Tons of places carry them.

    The black one is a wooly worm.One of the first flies I was taught to tie last year before my excellent instructor committed suicide. Noone saw it coming. Anyone out there struggling please talk to somebody; it leaves a gaping hole in everyone left behind.

    L-R Sedge or Caddis Dry, Royal Coachman dry, Sedge or Caddis Dry, Woolly Bugger Wet Lure, Bottom Crawdad Jig also works for catfish believe it or not. Dries for top of water fish, others for sub-surface and they,ll All take trout and panfish plus some coarse fish such as chubb and carp(the caddis patterns mainly).
    The scenery in the Grand Coulee area of eastern Washington was worth the cost of the air fare on its own. Two doe whitetailed deer drinking not twenty yards away from my boat partner and I as a golden eagle flew overhead looking for dinner. Magnificent and etched in my memory for all time!

    Top picture left to right;

    1.) Wooly WORM (not bugger),

    2.) I can't place this but I know I've seen something like it. I think some people are missing the small feather wings tied forward.

    3.) Royal Coachman

    4.) IDK

    5.) Marabou Jig
