Default yellow sally/golden stone nymph SBS

I've been having some great luck with this one. Its got some tricks that you can use on other flys as well, specifically the biots and again my split case processes.

Size 14 yellow sally or yellow stone nymph

Danville's 70 Denier orange thread
UTC Ultra Wire BR Red

Start the thread and and wrap the wire down the top of the hook starting at the back of the thorax or 1/3 down the hook from the eye. Make 2 1/2 wraps of the wire back up to creating a "ball".

back your thread down to just in front of the wire ball and tie in the biots with curve facing in using the thread. the wire ball spreads the biots. keep them alligned exactly up both sides by adjusting and then a couple thread wraps to secure.

Spread the biots and hold with a couple thread wraps and dub up with Spectrablend.

though the color is a bit off in the photo, the dub is more yellow than green. make a nice tapper up 2/3 of the hook toward the eye.

Pull the two biots up along the sides and secure with thread.

Starting the first wrap to cover your thread where you tied in the biot tails, wrap the wire up the body, pull back the biot ends and continue wrapping in front of the biots to hold them back. three wraps in front will give you a good lock on the wire and make the fly last longer.

carefully pull the biot ends up to the top, give a couple wraps to hold them and tie in your yellow foam strip (cut from wally world foam sheets, come in a pleathora of colors). keep your thread wraps meaningful. don't want too much thread build up, there is alot more that goes here.

Waspi Antron #2 kit has a great march brown color that I think sets this off and highlights the case and legs on the thorax.

I chose yellow mallard flank for the legs and prepare the feather like so.

one wrap over the feather to hold it, we'll adjust the length later

Click the image to open in full size.

pull the yellow foam forward, streaching it to conform to a nice roundness and secure with a couple loose-ish wraps...you need it loose enough to now pull the mallard and adjust your leg length. the legs spread out as you shorten them and you can do more about that after the tie is complete. once the legs are just right, secure with three more wraps around the foam and feather.

Click the image to open in full size.

Trim the foam and mallard feather CLOSE!

Click the image to open in full size.

Pull one biot up and across to the other side behind the hook eye and hold with one wrap. then pull the other over, one wrap, adjust, another tighter wrap, tighten the biots and secure with two more wraps.

Click the image to open in full size.

Trim the biots CLOSE! finish off the head starting just behind the eye and working back toward the thorax. apply SHHAN.

Default Re: yellow sally/golden stone nymph SBS

Thanks guys. The local fly shop guy says its just a universal corn fly...meaning its just a yellow attractor and in truth, seeing how there isn't anything like it hatching, but its still taken several good fish, especially browns, the last couple times out, I'd say its just an attractor. I tied the same with brown wire when the yellow sallys were hatching and it did well. I guess the sbs was more to show the wire and biot technique. The thing does last real well.

Great looking Stone nymph, JJ. Looks like you tie in the mallard up near the eye and leave the back portion loose. I'm sure the foam back holds it down but do you have problems with that feather coming out after a couple fish?

I like that it simplifies using a feather for legs. I gave up tying in the tip, trimming, pulling it over and tying it down again just because it didn't always seem worth it. With your method, I might try it again. Thanks!

Default Re: yellow sally/golden stone nymph SBS

Hey dean, thanks for asking. in the instructions, I have one wrap holding it and then the foam comes over but I pull the feather out the front and tighten the foam and feather down before trimming. the foam gets trimmed and the feather is a bit longer after trimming so the head finish must grab the ends even more. I don't have any issues with the legs falling out between the friction of the feather and all the head wraps. it lasts quite well.

on another point, sometimes I use hen hackle or partridge and those feathers are much shorter and a bit harder to work with. the real trick to making it work is to have the feather quill with the legs not be so long that it doesn't fit between the eye and the back of the foam. otherwise, the foam pushes the feather sideways when you pull the foam over. though it still works out when you pull the feather through, there is a chance that one side of the legs end up shorter than the other.
