Good list. Carry most of the sub-surface ones. With a PT Nymph soft hackle being my most effective pattern. I'd swap out the Elk Hair Caddis for a CDC and Elk(deer hair). Only two materials, easy to tie, maybe more effective than the Elk Hair caddis. I wish I had that list when I first started fly fishing.

Although there's nothing I would argue with on the list, the "dozen" is 26 different flies, or 84 if you count all the sizes (and that's assuming you only count even sizes.)

It also doesn't specify style of tying ("Catskill", parachute, or comparadun -- I carry all three for sulfurs, e.g.).

A good list, but it doesn't really narrow down the number of flies the beginner should carry, especially since he would want several of each.

This is a great list, I think as a beginner I'm often working on Technique, and I'd like to know that what I have on the end can be effective under most conditions. That way once I start catching fish (hopefully) it can be attributed to good technique. If I'm fishing something I have no clue about I don't know if I'm not catching fish because of my technique or because the fish aren't interested...
