Pyramid Lake Flies?

Hey guys. It's been a while since I've posted here. My trip to pyramid lake is officially happening. I'll be in Nevada from the 2nd to the 7th. I was wondering if you guys could recommend some flies for me. I'm trying to get a list together of what I need to tie and get ready for the trip. One technique that I know is popular there involves fishing floating flies with a sinking line. One floating fly in particular is the popcorn beetle. Never really seen or heard of anyone using this method here but it's certainly popular there. Don't know if I'll have the money to get a sinking line, though. Maybe I can get a shooting head, instead so I can try a bunch of different methods. I know the basic hanging of nymphs/chiros is tried and true there as well so I'll be sure to bring lots of standard stuff like red and black chiros, copper johns, etc. Any input on flies or anything for that matter would be appreciated. Gonna try and take some video and pics while I'm there so hopefully I'll have a decent report. I know the truckee River feeds into pyramid so I might try that as well.

No advice on flies, but I am looking forward to lots and lots of pics and a good report.

Have fun, sounds like a great adventure!!
