I voted dry fly because I enjoy it the most and try it the most often, even tho I know I should get down and dirty with a nymph.... I thought about saying terrestrials but I usually have a dry mayfly dropper off of them...

Wet flies- rusty brown/orange with squirrel hackle, or a dubbed body fly (various colors) palmered halfway (swept back slightly) tied on an eyeless hook.

The E/C Caddis has gotten more water time than everything else combined for the past several years, but it fishes weighted wet as well dry.

Whatever it takes.  Least used is a dry.  Most used is  Wooly Bugger, and getting into an IPW (Infamous Pink Worm) which is kinda like a San Juan Worm with a pink tungsten bead in the bend of the chenille.  It's a relatively new fly for me, but absolutely a killer.  I've seen it work incredibly well, with a strike indicator and weight.


Nymphs work very well for me and would work better if I fished them better.


I love tying dries, but see very few hatches around here, mostly caddis.

primarily a warmwater/saltwater guy myself, so definitely streamers/baitfish patterns.
