when they become dislodged they do curve
Here's my RubberBandit stone fly In a couple of versions. It sinks fast, is durable and looks like the genuine article. For those who believe movement is key, substitute hen hackle or rubber legs for the biot legs.
As for the curve, the jury is still out. I remember my dad and Eric Leiser arguing that one back in '79. Dad always said "curved nymphs are dead nymphs". But perhaps a dead nymph is just as tasty to a trout? Seems like they would squirm a bit if dislodged and drifting.
Because I've caught fish with both curved and straight body stonefly nymph patterns, it makes no difference to me if it makes no difference to the fish.
