    I like it on small streams about 12" underneath a hopper. I experimented with the tail, basically trimming carefully and a little head cement to form it. Hope everybody likes it, I am still pretty new at this.

    It's a variation on the Montana Nymph or Montana Stone in some books, which I am told is suppose to be some sort of a stonefly. I do it a little different plus I use red thread. Works pretty well on Lone Lake.

    Flies are headin' out today. Had to switch to a caddis emerger because of a materials shortage, but I don't think I stepped on anyone else's pattern. Extras are for the swapmeister, of course.

    Thanks again for hosting, TTT
