    For survival I would use a jiggie, for fun a popper. You can catch almost all fish on a jiggie from the surface to the bottom. With the longer shank hook there is less of a chance to get bit off and starving to death. Would like to have wire leader just in case.

    to conserve prescious bodily fluids, and because i am lightly complected, i would only fish at night. therefore, i would pick a 4" black clouser tied on a treble hook. when i got through deluding myself that i could survive by fishing with it, i could snag small creatures instead. if you think an albie makes the drag sing, a mongoose is like mariah carey on crystal meth.

    Cool

    Weighted whooly bugger, in all sizes. I'm assuming you mean one pattern, not one fly [img]smile.gif[/img] . A WB can imitate anything, fresh or saltwater, depending on how it's fished and its colors. Hands down, that would be my choice.
