Tim’s Little Black Stone

by Tim Flagler via TightLineVideo

hard to think of a nicer, simpler, great surface footprinted, Wonder-Winged, low-riding adult stonefly pattern.
harder yet to think of anything else i could add to what looks like the end-all stonefly imitation except for… enjoy !

ps- well ok, just one thing. try not to crowd the hook eye so much with excess materials when you’re tying your own… ūüėÜ


Stonefly¬†exoskeletons ¬†(order:¬†Plecoptera)¬†found near a french Pyrenean river. it’s hard for me to pinpoint exactly but i believe them to be of the¬†Leuctra ariega species even if they seem to be a bit too big for that particular bug.
whatever they are they’re beautiful and i know the trouts like them too…


Tying a Golden Stonefly Nymph

 by Davie McPhail

you’ll have guessed by now that i’m a great fan of Davie McPhail’s tying skills and videos. just about every evening i’ll go through his video channel, just one tie at a time, watching sometimes over and over until i feel confident i’ve assimilated the techniques.¬†observing

this bug is a fine blend between realistic and ‘fishable’ flies. vary sizes and colors and this stonefly will catch ¬†fish anywhere in the World. enjoy.
