What is the the EASIEST yet STILL VERY effective fly that you tie?
For me it is the PLain Old brown paper-bag variety of the
Gold-Ribbed Hares ear nymph.

Most versatile is a bugger, hands down. Ya can fish it in any water, for most species.

If I had to pick for trout fishing in good conditions, it's very close between a PT and a zebra midge.

From a strictly dry fly point of view, a crowe beetle. In summer and fall, I usually have at least 3-4 dozen of these in my vest, and have caught fish everywhere on them

A fur ant. I tie them in bright orange with a white hackle. They are very visible and very effective. I think size 18 is the best.

I suppose in the easy to tie department, it would be tough to beat some midge patterns. They can be literally, fuzz on a hook.

I tie a midge emerger. I have caught fish with it in every stream I have tried it in. I tie it in stripped peacock herl and white goose biot for the body and have at least a dozen of each with me. It takes a little longer to tie than a conventional zebra midge but it is worth it.

Hi All,

I would have to say the Weenie and egg pattern...I tie it very loose and thin compared to the compact eggs...in the water it sucks up the water into a globe that just can't be beat...great on steelhead...thanx to Rich Zoog for showing me the pattern...catches fish everywhere...
