There is no specific size or shape that is best. It is recommended that you take all sizes from No. 2 to No. 8 and try different body shapes from a slim body to a full body.
Some popular Bug and Bomber color combinations that have worked well for us are:
Dark Green Body; White Tail and Wing; Brown Hackle
Dark Brown Body; White Tail and Wing; Brown Hackle
Natural Body; White Tail and Wing; Orange Hackle
Green Body, White Tail, Orange Hackle, Flourescent yellow and/or
Orange Butt (green machine)
To keep your dry flies floating high we suggest coating them with a dry fly floatant, such as Ginke.
