Northshore Stonefly Nymph

I started tying the Northshore Stonefly Nymph for a client but have been fishing this simplified stonefly nymph pattern designed for trout and steelhead. I tie the fly on a 3xl curved hook like the Mustad C53s, Tiemco 200R or the Partridge K12ST. You could also bens a 4 or 5xl streamer hook if you are in a bind. I use a custom blend of dubbing this fly that is similar to Hareline’s Senyo’s Laser Dub. The process to make your own dubbing is pretty straightforward so if you want to try it out yourself, you can check out the process here. I tie this in black, brown (this version in the video), olive, and golden.

Copper Bunny Streamer by Bozeman Creative

The Copper Bunny streamer looks like a promising pattern for fishing trout rivers and pike lakes. This meaty streamer will ride hook up and the weighted eyes and body will help the fly descend to the feeding depths in short order. The pattern should be easy enough to switch up the colors to create a range of lures for different situations. White, olives, all black, and combinations should cover the bases.

Delo’s Improved Nymph by Matt Delorenzo

The Delo’s Improved Nymph, designed by Matt Delorenzo, is a slight variation of an Iso Nymph. The fly uses stretch micro tubing for ribbing, and so it lets the body color really show while keeping the fly durable. The colors can be switched out to tie an endless variety of the nymphs. The tungsten bead ensures the fly is hugging bottom and swings in the strike zone for as long as possible. Matt also ties a steelhead version of the fly for stained and coloured water using an orange bead. It is defiantly a guide pattern as it is quick to tie, and it lands a ton of fish for Matt and his clients. It can’t hurt to have a bunch tied up for your own box.
