I am still a beginner at fly fishing, but I'd like to learn about the most popoular dry fly patterns.

Elk hair caddis and parachute adams seem to be two of the most popular and "sure-fire" dry flies to tie on. Any other suggestions?

Pretty much anywhere in California if you carry the following:

Elk Hair Caddis
Adams
Hares Ear
Pheasant Tail
any midge pattern


probably sizes 14 to 18
Nymphs carry bead head versions as well for faster water. Darker colors (brown, olive, black etc)

There are many spin offs of the Elk Hair and Adams all of them will be effective. The best thing to do is find a fly shop near where you want to fish and ask whats working.

Here is a pretty complete list of flies for the Sierra's:
