Sounds like a plan. My son does tie flies. I just hate bugging him. He won 2 Pa State titles as a youth. Those flies were great but it didn't take him long to realize they did not catch fish. He also uses "Hot spots" bright colors. I would like to find another source for my flies. I'm tired of bugging him to tie me flies that I lose in the trees. The only dry fly I caught a trout on was a elk hair caddis and a parachute ant. Now I have vision issues. The dry dropper is the only way so far I seem to fill the gap. Maybe I'm just working backwards. :)

For visibility- usually a big white or orange wing works best. But in rough foamy water or water with glare, black is best.

Brookies in headwater freestone streams are not picky about patterns or size. A #10-#14 parachute adams, black gnat, or a black beetle with a bright color spot on top works fine.

Small brookie streams are a great way to get started with dry flies. They'll streak right up from the bottom or off the bank to hit a fly. You just have to stay out of sight and lay it down easy. Usually, casts are less than 20 ft.
