Tying some of my Korn's Holiday Golden Holiday Stone Fly Nymph's today...
I designed this fly for Parks Fly Shop. I wanted to produce a more realistic stone fly nymph pattern that has lots of flash. It was designed for visibility in high muddy water conditions sometimes found in the early fishing season on the Yellowstone River.
