"There is no more graceful and healthful accomplishment for a lady than fly-fishing, and there is no reason why a lady should not in every respect, rival a gentleman in the gentle art."

Another one that have worked the last years are olive with red front hackle and red metallic bead - a variant of the icelandic fly "Rektorn" (The principal)
I always use fox or rabbit for the tail, depending on the size. My favourite hook is the Gamakatsu F-314 (se the black/chartreuse and the olive/red buggers)
And they work... :-)

i'm experimenting this season with mixing colours (shooting for a mottled look) and using grizzly hackles.
i'm the ghetto fly guy; enjoying the sport of kings, on a pauper's budget
if you have something to say, you'd better bring your own soapbox
i'm older than dirt, but younger than the universe

I tie a Coachman style body , black with chartreuse waist behind a black bead. Tail is black with a couple strands of Krystal flash. A pink waist on a black bugger also seems to work well.

In order...Olive, Black, Brown, Black with Olive...in rivers when I'm after Walleye and/or Sauger, yellow body/white tail/white hackle gets added to the mix.
Those are my go-to's, but I have a lot of fun tying Buggers so I'm always trying new combinations. Funny thing is, I have never had significant success with all white or white with grizzly. I do an orange Estaz/white tail/white hackle that gets love from trout, but my absolute favorite for winter time fishing is all Black with pearl Flashabou tied into body and tail. It has never failed to not only get hit but get biggest fish of the day in the winter.
