    Bit of a change from the traditional HF Stone (the one pictured below is actually a Gerath Golden Stone, which is basically the same fly without a tail)

    New and improved version is pretty much a Chubby with a modified front end. Colors are unlike any goldens I've run across but Mr. Lawson knows a great deal more than I do.



    hook - Mustad 9672 #8
    thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
    egg sac - Krystal Flash black
    underbody - Spectrablend antron ginger
    body - 2mm foam cinnamon
    wing - EP Fibers golden olive
    legs - Sili Legs barred pumpkin
    cowling - 1mm foam brown (with help)


    mash barb, wrap front of shank with thread

    tie in 1mm foam (gap width); didn't have brown, but Sharpie saved the day

    tie in KF, fold/wrap back to point above barb
