Type of pattern Dry Fly, Stonefly, Beetle
Originator of pattern Matthew DeLorenzo
Tied and Submitted by Matthew DeLorenzo
Tying experience needed Advanced, a complex pattern that uses somewhat difficult techniques. Previous tying experience helpful.
Materials List:
Hook Orvis 1523-00 #8
Thread Veevus 12/0 - Black
Overbody Black 2mm Foam
Underbody Green 2mm Foam
Rib Fine Diameter Monofilament (6X)
Abdomen SLF Prism Dubbing - Olive Brown
Underwing Krinkle Mirror Flash - Pearlescent
Wing No-Fray Wing Material - Gray
Indicator Multicolor Foam or Alternating Pink/Blue Foam Strips
Legs MFC Speckled Sexi Legs - Tan
Thorax Grizzly Hackle
Tying notes The Indicator post can be tricky and must be tied in figure eight style on top of the hook. Do not allow it to slide down onto the sides or it will show through the hackle on the thorax. Make sure the front legs angle down and the head of the fly angle up or it will effect the way the fly was designed to fish, not that it cannot be fished dead drift.
Target species Trout
Fishing notes This fly has been a few years in the making as I have been making countless adjustments to it while fishing my home water, the West branch of the Ausable. A fly pattern does not make it into my guide box without be proven. I finally have it dialed in the way I would like, this fly fishes extremely well as a stonefly adult and it's a passable beetle pattern as well. It fishes best with a twitch/pause
