Woven Body Stonefly nymph

Good Day All.

Finally got a digital camera and I can now post a few pics. Just learned to weave the other day and thought I would like to feed a few of these to our iron headed friends.

I will try them out on the Columbia river rainbows and let you know how they work.

I am thinking the Dean and Thompson too....as I have seen some shucks on the rocks there that go full 2 inches

Here's the pattern:

Woven Body stone

Hook: Teimco 200R size 4-6 or equivalent

Thread: 6/0 or 8/0 Burnt Orange Uni thread

Tails/leg/feelers - Tan or Ginger goose biots.

Legs are bent by heating a pair of fine pointed tweezer tips for about 5-8 secs with a BIC lighter. Pinch the biot where you want the bend and fold over the biot. The heat will set the bend. A word of caution here....do the bending before tying it, as sometimes the heat will be too much and sear the leg joint off...then you have to start the fly over again.

Underbody: Heavy lead wire .030 dia. on abdomen, then double back to form thorax. thread wraps and head cement in place so lead color doesnt leech out.

Underbody color: Burnt orange diamond braid unravelled, this will show through the bottom braided section

Adbomen Braid. Top braid is dark brown UTC stretch tubing
( med) The underside braid is Amber UTC stretch tubing also size med. Both woven in place with the overhand or granny knot braid.

Windcase: Dark brown raffia folded back for first two cases then clipped in a V for the wingcase just back of the eyes

Thorax. Unravelled Burnt orange diamond braid material. Dubbing around eyes and last wingcase are any burnt orange dubbing mix....I like it with a little flash in it.

Eyes: Size small black nylon dumbell eyes.

This is a rather labour intensive fly and each one will run you 40 minutes to an hour, depending on tyers experience.

Good Luck....its worth the effort

Add the Rogue fish to that list.

The 'black stone' is one of the major food groups available to upper Rogue fish year-round. Suspect this could be a killer.

Please send me six for 'experimental purposes.'
