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.

Spring is near. The Winter doldrums worse than usual. Tying some flies might rekindle the anticipation.

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.

It should be relaxing…

The Whitlock’s Red Squirrel Emerger pattern (above) accounted for many nice trout this late Summer. Fished on an Intermediate fly line just above the weeds, it proved to be quite enticing on Oregon lakes.
