    I'm not familiar with the pattern so I don't know if you tied it correctly or not. I know it will most likely work during the Giant Stonefly hatch.

    Normally, I do just fine with a Clark's Stonefly at the beginning of the season.

    Here's an interesting pattern my friend Eric Hoberg ties for use in slow moving water or back eddies. When the trout are becoming suspicious of the usual patterns (like a Clark's), this one sometimes will fool the fish when all else fails:

    Offhand, I'd say you tied the pattern exactly right.
