Northshore Stonefly Nymph

The Northshore Stonefly Nymph is a simplified stone fly nymph pattern designed for trout and steelhead. The fly is tied on a curved Mustad C53s hook, but any curved nymph hook like the Tiemco 200R or the Partridge K12ST also work well. I use a custom blend of dubbing for my patterns, but Senyo's Laser Dub is a good dubbing for this fly. If you would like to make your own check here.

I tie this in black, brown (this version in the video), olive, and golden.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
