I'm sure this pattern exists somewhere, but between seeing luck on estaz egg patterns and stone flies, I figured why not combine them. I borrowed Larry's (Mcnerney) technique for the legs/wingcasing/back, added some rubber legs for more movement, and have taken 3 fish on the dark variant so far. Added three of the light variant last night. I've been using 12s and 14s but I think I will be tying especially the large variant in obnoxiously larger sizes soon. Big fish like big meals, right?

I'm trying to find the name for this pattern, assuming it exists... any help would be greatly appreciated!

Great looking stone flies. I might have to trade you for some of mine!

How about swapping when we meet up on the Delaware It's too bad I'm missing your first run on the 10th, but I'm hoping to head that way in the end of March, I'll keep you posted.

Sounds like a good plan to me.

I tried Congo Hair for the first time, and decided to do a replica of the EP Crab. This is only the second crab I've ever tied, and there's some things I'll do a little different on the next one. But I thought share this one, warts and all.
