Here's a couple of Stimulators I tied up for SW club's weekly Sunday night tying session.  It's been a while since I tied any trout flies.  These should make decent panfish flies.

Below is the list of materials the host provided.  

Hook: #6-18 TMC 5212 or 200R or similar 2x-3x long hook. - I used a similar hook, I think an Ahrex

"Ltd." is a typo. It is CDC. but my question is who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?😉

Another EZY fly pattern from Gretchen and Al Beaty.

Quick N'EZY PMD This pattern sees the wonder wings doing double duty as the wings and wing post.

352403078_QuickNEZYPMD.thumb.jpg.8c0cf9782ad5874110f9be948955cf60.jpg

Hook - standard dry fly, 8-22

Thread - color to match body (light cahill used here)

Tail - to match natural (cream used here)

Wings - to match, tied as 2 wonder wings (light ginger used here)

Hackle - to match, tied parachute (cream used here)

Body - natural or superfine to match (light tan used here)

This style of fly can represent almost all mayfly species by modifying the color of the materials and size of the hook.
