One of my favorite fly's is a nymph because they are easy to tie and you can fool around with the patterns

personally small size 12-8 zonker streamers with the mylar bodies and rabbits strip backs, lots of cool eyes to fool with and not to mention head modification.

I love tying leeches and minnows. So Streamer.

Nymphs would be my second.

You might want to add dry flies.

streamers and deer-bugs are my favorites to tie,

you seem to have neglected to include standard Dry Fly as a choice in your poll- I would think that's a fairly important option.

I don't really have a favorite, I just like to tie! smile.gif However, I voted streamers, because of the choices displayed, those are what I tie the most.

99% of my tying is poppers & streamers, with a few nymphs thrown in. biggrin.gif

I'm with you. I just like to tie and whatever pattern looks different and challenging then I tie it. I am trying to get a good collection of different patterns to send to cast for recovery so as of lately I don't have a favorite. I do love to tie extended bodies and adult drakes

Too many categories missing. Soft hackles are only behind Wooly Buggers in popularity. No dry flies? Saltwater?
