    Default 4 Must have flys

    OK.... Fishing season is in full swing & you want to be a minimalist. Your going after trout. What 4 Flys are a must to have on your patch.
    Mine would be
    Streamer: Black Ghost
    Nymph: Hares ear
    Dry: Adams
    Wild card: Ant
    No need for sizes, just put down what you would bring to your favorite stream..
