A number of the flute makers have fingering charts.

I've found Margaret Fleck's page on Keyless Flute Fingerings to be pretty complete.

I find this chart for single key flutes http://www.oldflutes.com/charts/onekey/ gives plenty of things to try out. Several of them, even those that show the key in use, work more or less as described in the comments on my small-holed Burns folkflute. On a large-holed flute many may not work.

Second octave G# with XXO XOX is a good strong note for me but doesn't work on some large holed flutes. A high proportion of the few tunes I need G# for only use it in the second octave. First octave G# XXO XXX can be blown into tune but is very veiled. One or more options for the three second octave notes beyond the normal 'Irish' range works for me - but I need to practice.

Here's a discussion of the topic that might be interesting... viewtopic.php?f=2&t=88141

Best wishes.
