Stonefly time…

May is an optimum time for Stoneflies in Central Oregon rivers and elsewhere as the rivers warm. This is a simple pattern…like an enlarged nymph pattern.

Stonefly Pattern-Backstrap-SwittersB

A size 8-10, 3xlong hook, goose biot tail, copper wire ribbing, black fur/synthetic dubbed abdomen/thorax. The ‘backstop’ from tail, up over the abdomen and thorax is turkey feather. The legs in front is a few wraps of black hackle fiber. A simple, yet productive tie. This pattern can be weighted with wraps of ‘lead’ wire or left unweighted and weight attached to the tippet. Blacks, brown, dark yellow/rust colors for the stonefly contingent that emerges/crawls out starting now into Summer.

CDC bead head pattern…

cdc-beadhead-nymph-swittersb

This pattern is tied on a straight shanked hook, size 12 here. The trailing material is mylar tinsel for movement and flash in the upper strata. The body is a wound dubbing brush, but of course you could dub a similar body, in olive. The wing is a couple of stacked CDC feathers.  This pattern has done very well on rivers and lakes as a diving/emerging caddis imitation. This would be an equally good pattern without the bead and fished below the surface or in the film.

Fly tying: deer hair collar…

A buoyant material added on a caddis pattern. Spun in a dubbing loop and wrapped as a collar/thorax. It is fairly durable and impressionistic of wing/legs.

Little Black Nymph…

Not too small, a size 14 here, trout pattern when basic black works subsurface. If you aren’t chasing Salmon or Winter Steelhead then it’s time to tie.
