WHAT DO YOU USE THE MOST?

Most of them are nymphs though.

I have been absent from this forum for about two years. I am very glad to be back!
If there are fish to be caught, then I am most likely out on the water!

Darwinism seems to have become a politically protected sacred cow, and I've never seen a sacred cow I haven't wanted to roast - the fact that you are not supposed to criticize it is just too irresistible to me.

Streamers, streamers, and more streamers. Bass and pike really love to hit them.

one of my favorite rigs is a hopper dropper, dryfly combined with a small nymph.

Tough one. It's close. I'd say I go through phases both tying and fishing where I use lots of a specific fly or style of fly.
Historically, nymph's, and streamer or wet fly variations were my favorite, and though I'd fish known patterns, most often it was a "version" of my own.
The last few years I've fished a lot more dries, and for whatever reason, this past winter my tying was drawn to patterns with a long history. Some I've used for years, some I've only just started to mess with for whatever random reason. I've just found simplicity and comfort in tying what's been tied for decades and have enjoyed it.
I guess it's hard to dial this in the more I think about it...

Cool thread anyway. Little hendrickson and PT nymphs for me.

Nymphs mostly. Montana nymphs have been particularly good to me lately.
But I have a couple lure patterns I like. Cats whiskers. particularly a variation with a hot orange bead head
