Pattern Hotwire mega stone

#1
Last year early may i was tying some flies for a trip the next day,it was higher water than normal and i knew the trout would be stuck to the bottom.I was running low on tying materials so i tied up my possie buggers/prince nymphs then looked at what i had left to see what i could come up with.Something larger with flash and movement that will also help get the other fly down to the trout.About half an hour later i had came up with a fly that looked like a mega prince and a wired stonefly made babies.With high hopes for the new cool looking stonefly nymph my friend and i headed out.I started out with my usual rig of a size 12 possie and a small flashback pt dropped off it,with just a few fish to hand.I was not satisfied with the results so i decided to tie on the mega stone then drop a possie below it.Within the next hour i had brought over a dozen cutties to hand,almost all of them on the mega stone.This was the first time i have ever had a fly out fish the possie bugger in any river fishing situation and proved the fly deserved a permanent spot in my nymph box.
