Looking for input on other flies to fish under an indicator other than chronimids there has to be others right? Thanks. Ck

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

Depends on the bug you are chucking and the type of water you are fishing, most will need some shot to keep them down.

The main exception will be big stone nymphs, the good ones are all tied heavy enough to fish without shot.

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.

PS: if anyone sees that bug let me know!

that fly is awesome. It looks like they supply them to most the shops around the US. is there where you bought a bunch of them from Pat? if i was a fish i would eat that thing :happy:

I wonder if i could find the materials to tie it :confused: and the recipe of course :peace:

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 :confused: 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)

I don't think the fly is too difficult for you to tie Pat. Here is a first attempt (I would use a 3x long hook next time to avoid crowding the fly). PM me and maybe we can do a deal .

Nice looking bug proff, great first attempt. The ones I like are tied to imitate a golden stone, but that looks like a good skwala that you tied up there.

That would serve you well on the Yak as part of a dropper rig I am sure.

Maybe if the 2 of use get another tying night going out in Coquitlam some time I can get some tips from you! Your faith in my ability goes to show that you have never seen me tie before ;)

Cheers,

Pat
