What's your go to pattern when nothing else is working ? The fly you have the most confidance in.
Mine is the green weenie.

It changes every so often, but the walt's worm is the best all around fly IMO.

I consider any simple cigar shaped dubbing fly a walt's worm, but then again, I'm not really big on naming flies by their given marketing name. I prefer to call them names that define what the fly's features are, and the "cigar shaped buggy dubbing fly" doesn't roll off the tongue.

I tie and use more Hare's ears than any other fly. It is simple to tie, doesn't take me too long so don't mind losing it, and can match just about anything. I mix up the color, size, and weight and can catch fish on any stream in the state with it.

After the main hatches are over in June, for summer and fall fishing, it would be #14 crowe beetle

I will use a flash back pheasent tail. If the water is high a muddy after a heavy rain, then I will use a wolly bugger.

I always have a size 12 or 14 beadhead flashback PT. Killer on wild streams that don't see many guys.

For the more pressured streams I use a PT of some sort.

Sub-surface , gold ribbed hares ear nymph or small wooly bugger , Surface , small black foam bodied ant or any downwing caddis/stonefly type fly , smaller usually , both fished first dead drift and then with a lil motion. If i had these 4 flies available to me in a survival situation i would survive. I don't know why i look at things in that light , survival i mean , maybe it's a sign of the times , can't help it.
