FTF Fly Challenge: Stonefly Nymphs

Recommended Posts

Here is my favorite.

 

I tied some up in black and in yellow on some size 12's. The fish couldn't leave them alone on the Mckenzie the other day. Definitely my new favorite pattern for stones.

Here is what took me about 15 min to tie up with what materials I had from a kit I borrowed to see if this is a winter hobby I would enjoy. I did my best to match up materials to that of the actual fly I chose on-line. With a big, clear image to follow, I honestly tried to match up features and materials the best I could.

 

Here is my picture. Just don't laugh too hard.

Not a common thing here, I've only seen them on a couple of occasions here in the UK, but this is one from a while back.

Thanks Novabass, stupid amount of work. The legs alone took about 8 hours. Got board with it several times, and had to come back to it. Got there in the end. It was all about solving a couple of tying problems. They were solved but not in a really practical way. I doubt I'll be tying another.

 

Ceers,

C.
