    I was going to put in Pats as soon as I saw this thread title, surprised it took that long for it to come up. its crazy simple and works awesome.

    Following up on this -- I tried a number of the suggestions including Pat's rubberlegs. What I wound up having the best success with, though, is a semi-classic Vermont pattern, very simple:

    wire underwrap
    black hackle tail
    black chenille body
    rib of pearl flash
    3 wraps of palmered black hackle on the forward 1/3

    I can turn out a group of three in ten minutes or less, and the trout have been liking it.

    Ohhhhh yeah! That should get plenty of grabs. Very nicely done. Let us know how that fishes.

    Very nice. I bought some stoneflies from Gander last week and they sure don't look near as good as yours. What size?

    Thanks! I think the one I took the pic of is a 10. I made them in 8's, 10's, and 12's.
