20 Inch Stonefly and San Juan Worm
 
The past couple of days I have been tying a few of Charlie Craven's version of the 20 Inch Stonefly:

Hook TMC 200R #4-12
Head Gold or Tungsten Bead
Weight Lead wire
Thread Black 6/0
Tails Dark Brown Goose Biots
Rib Gold Thread or Tinsel
Abdomen Peacock Herl
Thorax Natural Hare's Mask Dubbing
Wingcase Turkey Tail Quill
Legs Hungarian Partridge

Here is a San Juan worm that I have been experimenting with using some new material I obtained from Spirit River called "Squirmy Wormies" that I thought was kind of interesting. This stuff has lots of natural movement and feels real soft when squeezed. This should work well during next spring's high flows:

Real nice stone fly nymph Larry. That wormy stuff does look real interesting. Does it have any streatch to it? tear easy? I'm always looking for more worm building elements. I've got one made from pink prophylactic...but that's another story.

thanks for sharing these two Larry. Marry Christmas to you too!!

JJ: Thanks! The worm material is really stretchy and has a nice soft feel to it so I'm thinking it won't tear easy, but I haven't tried it out in the water yet. I probably won't give it a try until spring.
