Dry flies are easily my favorite style to fish, and you'll find every one of the patterns below in a fly box of mine! Fly fisherman for years have greatly enjoyed seeing fish take their fly, and then visualizing that take over and over again. As others have recommended, select a few patterns and tie multiple dozens of that one to become a more proficient tyer. Once competent with a specific style or method, the skills will transfer to another with more ease. Good luck with these patterns, and I wish the same success to you as I have had with so many of them over the years.
