Creepy Crawly Stonefly Nymph – Hans Stephenson

this is a killer looking little stonefly nymph that I know will work perfectly on my favorite little stream. The legs on this are killer looking, and although Hans uses golden pheasant, you could easily use ringneck in it’s place. It’s a fairly realistic pattern once you add the legs, and I can’t see how a hungry trout could pass up that little morsel. I love the fact that it’s tied on a short scud hooks. I find these are great for hook ratios and favor them over the longer shanked curved hooks. Happy tying.
