For decades I tied with just 4 colors, just recently adding two more. The 4 colors are black, olive, tan and red. I added orange and copper/brown. I've had a bunch of other colors in sewing thread I may or may not use for body material or ribbing but as far as tying the fly, those are the colors I use in 6/0, 8/0 or 70D..

My base colors for 90% of my patterns are white and black. I do mix in olive, orange, red and chartreuse.
A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

“The thing about fishing is that it gives a man hope. Each cast builds a little hope and if he can lose himself to that hope, then the worries and the heartache fade into the background. The wind inside him dies down for a while”

Rusty orange, white, primrose, black, red, and something else. (I do seem to tie a lot of snipe and purple, so probably the latter.)
