Woolybuggers , Hares Ear and Elk Hair Caddis . Not only good patterns but if you can tie them well , it's a good foundation of tying skills . Working with Hackle , dubbing , elk hair , furs, ribbing , knowledge of different hooks and why there are different hook models . Plus a bunch more

Good suggestions. I'd add the zebra midge (black)--a way overlooked fly imo. BT
