StimiPillow

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This is sort of a cross between a Stimulator and a Soffa Pillow. Been trying different materials. This one has an Underwing beneath the over-wing of bucktail. I use uni-stretch thread for the body.

Will this work in late May/early June on Western rivers? I hope so.

I have had quite a bit of success with Stimis on the South Fork during the Salmon Fly Hatch. Big and orange was all you needed. That should work. The hatch is usually late June to Early July there, but who knows this year could be a lot different.

 

The pattern looks like it should do fine.

That would work on the rivers I fish in CA, but mid to late June/early July would be a better time in normal-weather years. I use to take the last week of June off of work and had pretty good luck hitting the hatch and avoiding those who took the July 4th week off.

Oh, The Henry's Fork, that's East for me.

The fly should work, timing the hatch can be hit or miss...

 

 

Man, you should have been here last week, it was awesome!

Yes, or: "Will you be here all of next week? Should really be good by the end of next week."
