Fly Tying: Montana Stonefly Variety

I have before remarked that I find the Montana Stonefly one of the goofiest stonefly imitations…not the goofiest (that goes to one of those black chenille bodied with white rubber legs creations) perhaps but, still an odd ball creation that endures. And, as I previously remarked, the largest trout I have caught on the Metolius R. was a massive Bull Trout from the slot beneath Bridge 99 (note that fish had a trout protruding from its mouth, yet took a black and orange Montana Stonefly!).

So, mixed perceptions on this fly. I am sharing the classic look and another look provided by a different hook configuration. It has endured, so something must be working. There are a lot more color creations today than years ago. Even if you don’t go for the time consuming weaving process, a more slender body on a non-traditional hook would give the pattern a fresh look. Weighting considerations may be an issue, which would add thickness along the shank.
