Shoeman’s Stonefly Fly Pattern

Hook – 94831
Thread – black 6/0
Weight – lead wire parallel to hook on both sides
Tail & Antennae – black goose biots
Legs – stripped and knotted hackle stems
Body – black opposum
Wing Case – brown mottled thin skin
Rib – stripped hackled stem

Comment – Attach 2 short sections of wire along each side of hook to give a flat appearance. Apply the tail biots. (Tweezers help in positioning them) Attach the ribbing stem and dub slightly more than 1/2 the body forward. Strip 6 hackles and knot them for the legs. Attach the first set of legs and the first wingcase. Dub another portion and attach the second set of legs along with the second wingcase. Dub the head and the third set of legs along with the biots for the antennae. Tie off and apply head cement. Thanks to “Shoeman”.
