Jimmy Legs is a simple weighted stonefly pattern. The variegated chenille imparts a natural appearance to the damp fly and the 8 flexible legs help to suggest living prey item for searching fish. While the fly will work wonderfully on Alberta’s Bow River, I’m giving this one a whirl on some of the Great Lakes tribs this summer.
