SBS Lawson's Henry's Fork Foam Golden Stone SBS


Active Member

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.
