For dries I always have size 14 Stimulators, size 14 and 16 Elk Hair Caddis, size 14 and 16 Parachute Adams, and size 14 and 16 Parachute Hare's Ears. Also a hopper or two and a couple of foam beetles.

I rarely fish streamers, but I always carry a couple of size 8 and 10 olive wooly buggers, and a white Zuddler.

If I'm going near warm water or salt water, I've got chartreuse/white and olive/white clousers in 4 - 1/0, a couple crease flies, a couple Gurglers, and a handful of wooly buggers.
I have to agree with 92Esquire, my fly box looks very similar to his. However, if I can only use 1 fly on unfamiliar water it will probably be a #16 BHPT.
