Tim Flagler shows how to tie a Little Black Stonefly Nymph, one of the earliest effective stonefly patterns of the season.

“Just because there’s still snow on the ground and you can’t feel your hands doesn’t mean you can’t fish,” says Flagler.  “I’ll tie this pattern on behind a heavily weighted Prince, and it’s usually a toss-up which fly gets taken.”
