    Thumbs up Minny Skinny Stonefly


    Feel free to substitute in your own colors to match what you have in your local waters. I also tie these in a gold pattern:


    Enjoy the tie, and I hope this pattern brings you some enjoyment out on the water!

    When I first glanced at the pic I dismissed it as one of the plastic pre made stoneflys, I'm glad I looked again great job with those legs
    The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners, who is not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and bamboo rod. Granted, he releases what he catches, but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout – cold, hard, spotted and beautiful – becomes “number seven.”

    Thank you. And nope, no cheater plastic parts here, all made using typical materials. I may try to make a video at some point to go along with this guide, as I'm not sure I explained the process as well as I could have.

    Individual pheasant tail fibers for both the antennae and tails.
