Dry, Nymph or Streamer?

Streamers!  Nymphs would likely catch you the most trout, and the visual re-inforcement you get from dry fly fishing is great fun, but to me, the dramatic, jolting strike from a large trout to a streamer is unsurpassed.

As a Tenkara angler who is trying to follow the path of simplicity I would say a wet fly that resembles a nymph because that is a highly likely stage for the fish to be consuming at any given time. I truly believe that you can catch a fish at any time by simply presenting fly properly to the fish thus enticing a bite.

I think I'd choose dry flies. I'm not a purist by any stretch of the imagination, I just prefer chasing fish with dries. I love the setup, the cast, the drift and the take.

Not a choice I would ever want to make as I can appreciate the aforementioned gentleman's stmt about the adrenaline rush of a good down and across strike and I completely agree that if numbers are the goal, nothing will beat the nymph for consistent day in day out action. But...The satisfaction of matching the hatch, the excitement of the take, the timing of the strike, the shear artistry of the act itself, not to mention the multitude of masters that have evolved into what must surely be the jedi of the world of fly-fishing. I think I'm leaning, just a little mind you, toward the surface fly.
