How to Tie a Euro-Style Golden Stonefly Nymph

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

Tim Flagler demonstrates how to tie a Euro Golden Stone pattern, using an Orvis Tactical Barbless Jig Hook in size 12 with a black 1/8” slotted tungsten bead.  Because it’s tied on a jig hook with a slotted bead, this Euro Golden Stone will ride hook point up, making it less likely to get snagged and lost to the bottom.

    “Orvis Tactical Jig Hook”…with a “1/8” slotted tungsten bead”….and it ain’t even close to April First yet. Lordie, Lordie fly fishing has come a long way. Love ya all.

      So are you implying that barbless hooks and non-toxic weight are a joke? Wow..

        Nah…no problem, as my “0” weight, 12 foot Spey rod should be up to the task…four months in West Yellowstone just around the corner. As I said, love ya all….see you on the river (Oh, I wade wet…tropical shorts and a T-shirt).
