Although we love tying and fishing all of our nymphs as soft hackles we know there are plenty of other great patterns we like to pull out of our box.  This pattern is definitely one of them.  Stonefly nymphs are a big part of fish food source year round as the nymphs are tumbling down the stream looking for another rock to hide under.  These insects provide a good size meal and not much work to get it.  If you are struggling picking up fish have some of these in your box to switch up your luck and start bringing...

With this pattern we look to the wire wrapping technique inspired by Barry Ord Clark.  This technique allows you to wrap your wire body without losing the symmetrical form of the hook, and body of your fly.  We believe it also simplifies the process of tying, and adds to the aesthetics of this fly.  although the aesthetics of how it looks may not impact how effectively they bring fish to the net, as a tier I try to tie flies that also look good.  This pattern is simple in only using a couple of materials, making it a quick tie. ...
