    I am a rookie as well, but by then I should be much better.

    I should clarify, your favorite number one to go to fly, don't leave home without at least 20 in your box, the first one you tie on to search, etc.:)

    What is everyone tying so we dont have too many duplicates? With streams opening a month or so afterwards, I am going to tie some humpies.

    Let me clarify again, if only one fly in your box what would it be. Years ago I would have chosen the bucktail royal coachman. But now I have my favorite for both lakes and streams.
