Anyone willing to share materials and techniques for tying these patterns. I have justed started tying and I began tying egg patterns. I would like to try these patterns If someone can get me started in the right direction. Thanks in advance for any help.
I know l am new here and not to here to change the world but l do not like the Black Stone fly. l think l have had better outings with the Stone Prince and the Purple Lightning Stone. The bodies are lighter in color. l am also going to try using Golden Pheasant tail and wrap some ice dub in as a spin them for the body's of the next batch of stone fly's l make.

Try www.theanglersnet.com They have fly tying and fishing videos. The site is mostly spey oriented but, they have alot of fly fishing material. Spey fishing is two handed fly fishing, so they share many of the same flies wt depending. You don't see it much though. The fishing videos are mostly guys swinging one handers.
