It all depend on what your after and when. Early season salmon when the fish are eating you will use mostly imitative flies. A selection of four would have to include a needlefish pattern, a herring pattern, a shrimp pattern and a popper. In the fall once the fish are in their waiting period the same flies may work but you will need to fill another box with small, sparse and colourful attractor patterns to be truly productive. This is where there is a huge allsortment of patterns and you can let your imagination run wild at the vise. Just have some green ones, some red ones, some yellow ones and some pink ones.
