The Griffiths Gnat is a personal favorite of mine and the first trout I ever caught was with this fly.  Want to dress it up? Add a red Kreelex tail.Simple and effective.

 

The Red Tag; underused but deadly as hell. Don't over look this fly!

I skip the wool and use Kreelex.

 

Another B.C. favorite. I like a red or olive green floss wound around the body.
