Exciter (dry), Hump's Sulphur (Nymph, Baby Leech (Panfish)
The Exciter is a LeRoy Hyatt original that is a great searching fly, and an all-around dry fly pattern. Hump's Sulphur Nymph was developed by Joe Humphreys to imitate the nymph of the various species of mayflies that go by the name of "sulphur," but it's also a good generic nymph for general use. The show finishes with the Baby Leech, a good bet for panfish everywhere.

B.W.O. (Dry), Buck Bug (Steelhead), Black Knight (Nymph)
Many hatches across the country go by the name of "Blue Wing Olive," and this dry fly version in various sizes is a good match for them. Many steelhead anglers are familiar with the waking fly called the Bomber. Here is a wingless version with a Krystal Flash tail that some steelheaders prefer. The Black Knight is another LeRoy Hyatt original which makes a good nymph for general use.
