Re: Question about stoneflies
My vote would go to the nymphs...We use the same thing for steelhead here in the Great Lakes region. My go to for a stone imitation is a simple black bead head in size 12, 14, or 16, depending on the water conditions and the size of the nymphs that are active. My tye is very simple: gold bead, rabbit guard hairs for the tail, and black dubbing. I have a picture of it in my gallery.
