Early Black Stone

 

This month’s fly is the Early Black Stone.   I saw a video of this pattern on the internet and we gave it a try at our Saturday afternoon tying group.  Early Blacks are one of the first bugs to appear in the spring, often before the snow is out of the woods.  It is a small bug, ranging in size from a 12 to an 18.
Hook     - long shank, curved hopper hook, sizes 12 – 18
thread  - Black 16/0
tail and antennae – small or micro black legs
abdomen – size 12 – V-rib size small
                       sizes 14 – 18  small or micro black legs
Thorax  - Kaufmann black stone dubbing
Wing case – Pleasant tail fibers
