opening day flies

If you had to choose 3 fly patterns to use on opening day for stocked trout, what would they be?

    Glo-Bug in chartreuse if there are browns, some shade of pink/orange if there are rainbows.

    A flash back nymph — doesn’t matter if it is hare’s ear, pheasant tail, or something else — it is the flash that is important.

    A small flashy streamer — doesn’t matter the pattern as long as there is some flash to it.

    Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.
