Leggy Stone

Trout Flies - Leggy Stone 6 Flies - $18.00

A big stonelfy nymph imitation pattern to fool those big trout looking for a golden, skwala or salmonfly nymph.

Nymphs are a great choice year round. The "under water" stage of many insect life cycles can last from 3 months to as long as 3 years.

It's my choice for the lead fly in a tandem nymph rig.

Pattern Recipe and Notes:

Hook: 2x long curved nymph size 6-10
Tail: Goose Biot
Body: Blended Angora Dubbing
Rib: Silly Legs
Legs: Silly Legs
Shellback: Holograhic Sheeting / Scud Back / Turkey Tail
Head: Tungsten Bead
Antenna: Goose Biot

Try a variety of blended colors for the body - mix several colors together in a coffee grinder. My standard is black 40%, brown 40%, then 5% of each red, green, yellow and blue. Experiment with your blends to match your local bugs. Build up the head a bit with tying thread, place the antenna and then the bead. A little lead substitute wrap behind the bead helps lock it in and builds up the thorax as well.
