If you were to fill you fly box, what variety of flies would you put in it? I am tying flies to have a variety of flies to use when I am not fishing and don't have much in it yet. What should I make sure I have with me?

Here's a discussion from a while back that will give you some suggestions: If You Could Only Have 5 Flies

To the "top 5" I would add some common "match the hatch" flies like Blue Wing Olives, Sulphurs, Light Cahills, and Tricos. And some attractors like Royal Wulffs and Humpys. And any other flies that are common on the water you usually fish, if not covered by the above (like blue quills in north central PA).

also,don't forget the nymphs. when all else fails, go deep. My stand by is a 14 black stone fly nymph. But, they must be on the water you fish. a wet or two wouldn't hurt, cover your bases.
