flies for my trip to the keys

So I have my tickets, wading locations scoped out, tide information, and possibly a day with a guide set.

So now I have started tying some flies.Not going to need a whole bunch and have narrowed my list to the following patterns:

Crazy charlies
bonefish clousers
Del's Merkin crab fly
Decievers and maybe some needlefish patterns for cudas

So what sizes should I be tying for the gotchas and charlies?

What color combinations will I need? I know I should have tan versions but am curious what others I should tie?

Also what materials are best for the wings on the gotchas?

Thanks for the help as usual,
