    I have to go with these...

    Adams
    Olive Wooly Bugger
    Elk Hair Caddis/emerger
    PMD
    Girdle Bug

    I've caught more/larger trout on these five hands down. Just my 2 cents.

    There are few things in life more pleasing than the sublime marriage of form and function that is found in a well crafted fly rod.

    I only made the post for one day after realizing that the original question was not clear enough for a 10 item poll. Sorry for wasting your time

    Hairs ear, Birds nest, Elk hair Caddis, Parachute Adams, Prince. Back in the day, in these parts, we would toss a Western Coachman very often also.

    Maybe next time we can do one for "freestone streams", one for lakes, one for "spring creeks"......?

    Adams Paradun, Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulater

    Hares Ear nymph, PT nymph and BH Prince nymph



    We do sell a lot of Ralph Cutter's E/C Caddis....
