For a nymph it would be a #14 soft hackle beadhead pheasant tail. For a dry it would be a #14 Adams Wulff. It really depends on the water and time of year, but those two flies would serve me well on a lot of PA freestone streams for much of the season.

The Wulff, of course. Royal. Dubbing on a scud if nymphing.

For brookie streams I like a size 14 Royal Wulff dry. For nymphing just about anywhere a BH Pheasant tail or GR Hares ear in size 14.

In Potter I like a Zug Bug tied on behind a Green Weenie. Catch a lot of fish with this rig.

I have caught more fish, without a doubt, on a gold ribbed hares ear soft hackle, size 14. A close second would be a bead head olive wooly bugger - like Patrick said, you can catch just about anything on any stream with that fly.

I suppose for trout it would be a foam beetle. For bass and salt, a Clouser Minnow.
