Flies for Cape Cod?

I'm starting to tie for my trip to Cape Cod (Wellfleet) at the end of Sept. After tying a few larger versions of Leland's Popper (blue and white, flashy, wire leader), I intend to tie up some basics: Deceivers, Clousers, Half and Halfs.... I even have some ersatz flatwing type flies for west coast salmon that would probably work....

My question: What sizes and colors beyond the basic #2 and 1/0 in chart/white, blue/white, olive/white? Any baitfish specifc patterns? Any "Don't come to the Cape without this one" patterns?

My fishing will mainly be from the beach, fooling around until something seems to work. 9wt, mult-tip line. Cursing and tailing loops--the usual.

Appreciate the help!

Tom
