Golden Stone Fly Nymph Fly Tying Video

In this video Simon demonstrates how to tie an effective golden stonefly nymph. This pattern does not employ a heavy bead, rather it’s on the “lighter” side by design. Lighter facilitates the “tumble” stonefly nymphs often go through in high water and as they make their way towards shore in order to become adults. The pattern uses a really stout new hook from Ahrex, the HR416 Anadromous Nymph Hook is perfect for trout nymphs, trout streamers, bass flies, steelhead nymphs and more. It has a nice shank length, heavy wire and lethal sharpness. Dirty bug yarn and Straggle String from Semper Fli help create a realistic and easy to form body and thorax. Enjoy!
