Thread: wiggle room

  1. Default wiggle room

    Alright, so thanks to the help of a local fly fisherman who I am ever endowed to, I have graduated to stoneflies. The thing is is that he reccomended a senyo pattern callled the wiggle stone. I can't seem to find a recipe for it and how to tie it. I heard that this pattern is fantastic, but I dont know what is required and I was hoping that one of you guys could tell me how its done.

    On another note, I was wondering if it is possible to take a tube fly and tie it on a regular streamer hook. Thanks in advance!!

    This is sold by Orvis, but as you can see, the wiggle is due to a detached tail and body as tied on a seperate hook.

    My interpretation of this picture would be:

    trailing hook
    Tail - black biot
    body - black dubbing

    main hook
    thorax - green dubbing or peacock herl
    casing/back - blue crystal flash
    legs - black biot

    black thread

    As for how to tie: I would tie the trailing hook first and attach the mono with an improved clinch to this. Then tie the mono in on main hook starting at the eye and all the way down the shank. It could also be tied to the bend like with a dropper. with the thread at the main hook bend tie in wing case and dub the main hook for thorax leaving a couple mil behind the eye...pull over case and secure with a couple tight wraps...tye in black biot and build up head with thread and finish.

    Its tied with a loop at the rear fly then the ends are tied in on front hook. Thus the wiggle.

    could be Opalescent Estaz on that front fly, looks pretty much like a partial PTN or modified birds nest on the back probably biots on the tail. Sandfly may have the answer on how they are tied together, probably a mono loop.

    Mono loop to attach the rear portion. You should be able to find a step by step if you google wiggle stone...
