Dry Fly

Chubby Golden Stone

Sizes:

#6

Color:

Brown

This version of the chubby features an ice-dubbing body, rubber legs, foam back, and a distinct Z-lon wing. Although the fly may look large, its the spitting image of an adult stone. For best results, throw the fly into fast-moving current and be sure to mend in order to keep the fly from dragging.

Nymph

Jigly Pat's Rubber Legs

Sizes:

#8

Color:

Brown/ Black

This legendary pattern is a tried and true stonefly imitation. The chenille body, long rubber legs, and articulated spine perfectly imitates a large drifting stone. For best results make sure the fly is bouncing on or near the bottom.

Golden Brown Stone Nymph

Color:

Brown/gold

Sizes:

#8

This pattern is composed of yellow dubbing, brown thread, long yellow legs, and goose biots. With its unweighted nature, this fly resembles a tumbling stonefly caught in current. For best results tie this pattern 8-10 inches above a heavy point fly on an indicator or euro rig. The weight of the first fly will keep the pattern right in the strike zone.

Nymph

Yellow Sally Nymph

Sizes:

#12-14

Color:

Brown

The body of this fly is composed of dubbing while the tail and head feature the distinct barred legs of a yellow sally nymph. This fly is most effective in a two-fly system as a dropper pattern. Simply tie 12-15 inches of tippet to the bend of the dry fly and then attach the nymph to the other end.

Dry Fly

Chubby Sally

Sizes:

#12

Color:

Brown/gold

The chubby Sally sports a chubby foam body, Z-lon parachute post and distinct dotted yellow silly legs. For best results, try imparting a slight twitch as the fly slides down the feeding lane. Stoneflies love high-oxygenated water so don't be afraid to target fast moving riffles, current seams, and pocket water.  

Dry Fly

Egg Laying Sally

Sizes:

#12

Color:

Brown / Tan

The egg-laying sally is the perfect fly to fish during the peak of the hatch. The body features a pale dubbing body and bright dubbing egg sac that helps it naturally blend into the hatch.  Additionally, the large wing intentionally mimics the antenna and folded wings of this fly. Female sally's lag eggs by shimmying across the surface of the water so don't be afraid to slowly skate the fly along the surface.
