Flies for the new season

So I'm back on line for the forseeable future even though I still haven't got a fixed abode yet. Arrived back last week to find the owners still living in the cottage I was supposed to move into so I'm living out of a suitcase in their B&B for now. Anyway while back home in south Africa I spent some time thinking about how I was going to approch this comming season here on Replot. Being able to fish as much as I do, I really can spend the majority of my time on the water trying different leader lengths,fly designs etc etc. I want to be able to fish as simple as possible this year so I've decided to use only 12 flies altogether. 6 tube flies and 6 traditional hook flies and will be alternating each day between one another.Type/design & Colour choice for these twelve flies is going to be important yet I still want to keep things simple. I have around two weeks to finalise my fly choice and colour combos so once I've decided I'll post my finished band of misfits and the reasonings behind my choices.
