Following up on this -- I tried a number of the suggestions including Pat's rubberlegs. What I wound up having the best success with, though, is a semi-classic Vermont pattern, very simple:

wire underwrap
black hackle tail
black chenille body
rib of pearl flash
3 wraps of palmered black hackle on the forward 1/3

I can turn out a group of three in ten minutes or less, and the trout have been liking it.

Very nice. I bought some stoneflies from Gander last week and they sure don't look near as good as yours. What size?

Thanks! I think the one I took the pic of is a 10. I made them in 8's, 10's, and 12's.
