Stone or may nymphs are deadly under indicators, most stones will have enough weight to fish them alone, while most mays will need some extra shot to keep them down. San Juan worms are also lethal fished this way.
Last but not least are glow bugs fished behind spawining salmon they are very effective beneath a bobber.
I am sure there are many others but that is what popped into my head.
I would imagine using bead headed flys in a stream would require added weight right? Wish I knew of some streams close by to practice this method (hint hint) lol.this is some fly fishin I wish to try very soon. Thanks for the replys guys! Ck
Have a look at the "bedlars double beaded stone" nymph in the top right hand corner of the link. This bug is weighted just right and is deadly for big trout on any river I have ever had the pleasure of soaking it in (they should ban it instead of bait). On of the deadliest flies I have ever fished. They are almost impossible to find so if you ever see them buy them all!
All smaller bugs wil require some added weight except for in the slowest, shallowest water.
As for rivers to fish close to here, there have been lots of recent reports all over the net about the two main trout rivers that we have close to us, try either of them and you will have lots of fun and get some great practice.
Good luck and feel free to PM me with any questions.
Hey Hook just got them from RFT, but they don't deal with that company any more so I haven't been able to find them for years. I am saving one for an example just in case I ever gain enough skill to tie somthing that difficult.
I will probably try to pick some up next time I am down south.......
hey pat, does that double bead stone have two beads buried in the thorax?! if so, that's a freaky deaky fly. I'm gonna have to give it a try...although it looks like more effort than it's worth...a couple wraps of lead would do the same trick. I would think the leg action is what's working for that fly. Thoughts?
M&Y has some double bead stones that yes use 2beads under the thorax of the fly however the ones they have dont look like this one you speak of. well they might but i only looked at a couple quickly. I might just have to buy a couple
Pat you should take the fly into a fly shop and buy the stuff to tie it and then get someone to show you how its done. I find it difficult to "bulk up" the dubbing properly RFT does free tying class on thursday nights, pretty sure they do them all year round and you can call ahead and ask them to tie these flies (at least thats what Darrell told me i could do)
