My top five flies for small stream and pond brook trout are;

Mini Bugger: #10-16

Humpy: #10

Para Adam: #14, #18

Partridge and Orange: #14

My fifth is a homemade hopper pattern that is killer on trout, usually #10-12

So I haven't been on here for 3 years. Got super busy with work, Boy Scouts, etc. Anyway, thanks for all your responses for the last years. One fly I was wondering about was the Doc Spratley. I saw it on a Facebook forum. I don't know what rock I've been living under but I never heard of it for the last 30 years. Anyone have a favorite pattern or color that works well? Lots of love for the pink squirrel. How about a pink bodied Doc? Excited to try it out.

Wow, a three year break after asking a question, ha ha, you must have expected an encyclopedia of flies by now, LOL.

I'm going to start with #5.

#5. Pheasant Tail

#4. Winged Black Ant

#3. Renegade

#2. Parachute Adams

#1. Delaware Adams.

I never heard of the Doc Sprately, but I'm sure going to look it up.

That was easy. That looks like a wet fly worth trying out, and it just so happens I plan on fishing wet flies more often this year.

Thanks for mentioning that fly.
