Here is my everything stone. I tie it for both trout and steelhead and it's the only stone I tie anymore. I swing it unweighted for Summer runs, and winter run fish. I weight it for Trout and nymph it deep. It's my weighted fly for the Met.

Hook; Your choice sizes 8 - 4

Tails and legs; Goose Biots. My favorite color is Ginger.

Body; Peacock Herl. Take 5 nice full qills and twist them around the thread into a rope. Tie in more if you want a fuller body.

Rib; Fine gold wire.

Nice looking fly Skilly,

I will have to make up a few of these ones. Turkey for the wing case?

I never really tried swinging stonefly nymphs but I suppose itís not a bad idea. I will have to give it a try. I still have some left over from the old days when I use to dead drift for steelhead (before I saw the light :hihi: ). Thanks for posting them.

I have tied them with a turkey wing case. But mostly I just tie it without. The fish dont't seem to care.
