Stonefly brown


We have created a total kit for stoneflies, a “kit-sheet” containing the Stone Fly Nymph Shells, but with the extra feature as precut legs, all still with gloss-doming, but also a rib is attached to the sheet. To this kit, you just need to add a hook, weight, materials for the tail and some dubbing, and you can create super realistic looking stoneflies.

Wrap the tundsten wire around, or for making a flat and wide body, tie in strips on strips on each side of the hook.
Add a small bulk of dubbing for spreading the tail. 
Make a thin body of dubbing for base for the rib. Let the thin dark line give the bodysegmentation.
Adjust the length of the headpart, by measuring with Stonefly Shell no. 1. The lenght of the shell should reach to the eye of the hook, this gives the right proportions of the shells. 
Before attaching the shell, make a dubbingpart underneath the shell and then tie the shell on top.

Do the same with the No. 2 shell. 
Mount two goose biots as antennas. Tie in the shell No. 3 reversed and upside-down at the eye-point.
Form the front of the thorax with dubbing and pull the shell backwards.
Finish off the fly, by attaching it with a turn of the thread, brush the dubbing out, and secure the tie in point with varnish.
