If I had to pick one fly for summertime dry fly fishing, the Klinkhammer Special would have to be it! High floating, easy to see, and the fish really dig it. This is one of my favorite patterns to fish in a dry dropper rig as well. Tie in sizes 10-18, and tie in whatever color suits your fancy, but black is always a great bet!
