Brew N Bug January 2022

Stonefly nymphs make their way back into my fly boxes after the hatches of spring/summer have long faded away. It's one of the larger food items that trout see in the colder months and a big meal compared to the small BWO nymphs and midges that trout feed on throughout winter. When tied with a tungsten bead it makes a great anchor fly in heavy water. Color combinations can vary, usually, I tie them in a golden yellow or a brown olive color depending on what species of stonefly are found in the stream"
