    Like the original poster, I'm a small stream/river dry fly enthusiast myself (though I'll cast a line in any fishy water).

    But, maybe because I've been doing this for 30+ years, my list looks more old school.

    1. Royal Wulff (a can't be beat go-to attractor that's been around since 1929)
    2. Elk Hair Caddis
    3. Orange (or green) Stimulator
    4. Adams / Parachute Adams
    5. Green or yellow Humpy

    I like these choices. But for fall on the Ruby a red Stimulator works very good.

    Try the Clark Fork in early July at 10pm. It's an amazing sight when 24" rainbows pounce on caddisflies right before dark. An EHC skated across and down gets lots of hits but hookups are tough.

    Hmm, top five. Since I spend most of my time on the Cedar and forks of the Sno:

    - BWO
    - EHC
    - PMD
    - orange stimi
    - GRHE (my dropper of choice)
