My flies for my first saltwater trip

The only items I'd want to bring with your fly selection would be a couple of tools that would allow you to do a bit of modification, if needed, on the water. A small pair of scissors for trimming, thinning tails or bodies - and a pair of small nippers in case you want to remove the eyes on something that needs to work shallower....
Great selection of bugs - here's wishing that more than half of them get chewed up.... If you go with a guide - along with a money tip - some of those patterns will be worth gold for a working guide down there...

Thanks Bob for the great advice! Indeed if my guide is any good and fun to be with, He will be allowed a decent pick of my flies if he so wishes! I've already bough a Montreal Canadians Hockey team logo Cap for him. Got to bring some local flavor down there with me! Haha...
I've thrown in some old tying scissors, along with a black and a red marker (to add dots or red throat to any flies).
Thanks for the input!
