View my 'default to' or 'bread and butter flies'

These flies give me a selection of flies that provide me with appropriate flies to catch fish in almost any fly fishing situation or location.

I have carefully narrowed my selection down into just six fly boxes and by either selecting from those fly boxes I can carry a handful of flies appropriate for land based fishing of say and inland or coastal river or impoundment or if I am boat or kayak fishing I can carry two or three of the boxes and be confident of having appropriate flies with me.

If I have prior knowledge that I am fishing a particular location (for example in competitions) I also add any location specific flies that are not already included. .
