A great pattern from our friends at In The Riffle.
The Wired Stonefly Nymph is a heavy, life like fly fishing pattern. You can tie it in lots of different colors like Golden Yellow, Orange, Olive, Black and Brown. The wired body creates a bright segmentation that stands out and adds extra weight to really get the nymph down in the water column.
If you tie this pattern, send us a photo and we’ll post it on our site! Or hashtag #avidmax on a social media channel with your photo.
