    So many options yet, in most cases a few flies are all you need.
    Now, if you had to choose one pattern for the type of fishing in question what would it be?
    Mine reads like this:

    Rainbow trout/stocked waters: Gold Ribbed Hares Ear
    Wild lake browns: Black Pennel
    River Browns: Greenwells Spider
    Sea Trout: Stoats Tail
    Salmon: Allies Shrimp
    Sea Fish (Bass, Mackerel, Garfish etc)- Charteuse & White Clouser.

    I reckon those patterns, in various sizes weights and variations (tube, double, treble etc) could see me through the entire year.

    Sea trout- Black and Silver tubes, teal blue and silver and surface lures.

    Salmon-Havent took a salmon on the fly yet, but have seen some caught on a cascade fly.

    Brownie- Black spider, winter brown iron blue spider, partridge and orange and for "on the top"-sedges, dry olives and small F flies.

    Stillwater Browns- gold ribbed hares ear, black pennell, black spiders and dry olives.

    Rainbows- Buzzers and anything else they fancy on the day.

    Grayling- March browns spiders, other spider patterns as long as they are size 14's. Dry flies with a bit of red in them and when they are smuttiing-go to the pub.
