    I would go with the HareTron, or Australian Opossum if they have it...

    For dryflies something like the Superfine would be good-- fine synthetic fibers that dub easily and don't wick up water.

    For nymphs you'd want something buggier- with some spiky guard hairs (or other comparable fibers).

    I probably go with either the
    Rabbit Assortment or the
    Ice Dub Trout Assortment with synthetic fibers that are good for nymphs and includes UV colors. A nice assortment of buggy colors.

    They both have a nice range of colors that will be useful to you for fishing in Missouri.

    Haretron is a mix of rabbit and Antron for a bit of sparkle and is also a popular choice, but I think the assortment has colors that will be less useful to you in Missouri like the pink and golden stone
