IMHO try all of them. I have had 1 fly work great one day, and the next not even a look. One day red, next day peach, next day flashy, etc.  And some days, nothing works. Think you got it all figured out, then those little striped  Bastages humble you. You have a good selection there. Any one of them could work.

Those all look great!  Another good one is the single feather orange ruthless flatwing.

Hi Rich,

 

For situations with multiple small baits (worms, grass shrimp, crab larvae, matchstick sand eels, etc.) I use a basic three fly team with dropper tags. If you do a web search for "three fly striper team" you'll find reference. Hope that helps,
