Default Starter Streamer Patterns?

Other than the traditional Wollies what would some other good streamer patterns be for Trout in the Driftless area? I know little stuff down to size 26's works for BWO and the like but some bigger size 6 streamers may open up some brutes in the waters.

Thanks guys think I will have to order some materials, digging through a couple of old driftless area books there was mention of a Black Ghost in size 12 so I need to source some hackle to tie one up.
