Great thread and interesting lists. Strange though, since my Top10 or even Top20 lists don't share many of the ones listed. This is even considering I rarely ffish wet. (I do love to tie wets and nymphs, but they never get wet).


So what are they?

dc said: "I often think that switching flies more would be a good thing (from the experience end) but I just have trouble doing that when I am really catching fish." - actually, I learn best when I do switch flies, especially to specific trouts that have rejected a pattern. For many years now, when I get 3-5 trouts on a given fly, I switch, to see what else works.

That is exactly what I am referring to, Les. I constantly feel like I am missing out on something by continuing to fish the same patterns even though they really produce great results.

Gray Coughlin Dry ( See Gary Lafontaine)
Zebra midge (black, grey, red)
Variations of GRHE (BH, weighted, weighted)
Variations of PT (BH, weighted, weighted )
Black/Olive/brown Wooly bugger
Kaufman's Stimulator
Soft hackle: light, grey, dark.
#22 light, grey, dark

That's way more then ten if you count variations, but this has been an interesting exercise. I honestly believe I would not catch any fewer trout in the streams I fish in Pa. if these were the only patterns I'd carry.
