Biot Stonefly Nymph
In this fly tying tutorial, I discuss the procedures and techniques to tie the Biot Stonefly Nymph, while also talking briefly about background information related to stoneflies. These bugs can be borderline heavenly from a fly fishing perspective, and the nymphs are especially important being that they can be fished throughout most of the year. The fly in this tutorial is a mix of a couple: Scott Sanchez's "Biot Stone" and Curtis Fry's "Twitchy Chicken Stonefly." By combining key elements of both, the Biot Stonefly Nymph is a great representation that is easy to tie and effective to fish.
Featured in this fly tying tutorial are the N202 hooks by Allen Fly Fishing. These hooks have a great bend that represents the stonefly well. Please be sure to check out those hooks, and the many others they carry, at the following link: http://www.allenflyfishing.com/n202-nymph-dry-fly/
The hen hackle used in this video is from Clearwater Hackle. The piece that the feather came from is loaded with all types of feathers, being that it includes both the cape and saddle. I encourage you to check those out at the following link: http://www.clearwaterhackle.com/mature-hens/
