F.T. Stone

This month’s fly is my own creation called the F.T. Stone Nymph.  I came up with the pattern many years ago and it has been a good producer from the start.  I wanted to put together a big pattern that I could use as a top fly in a nymph rig.  The fly is a gathering together of many of the key pieces of other productive flies.  These pieces are called feeding triggers, thus the name F.T.  It is tied in natural, olive, and my favorite, gray.
