How to Tie a Rubber-Legged Stimulator

Producer: Clark Pierce

Tier Clark (Cheech) Pierce: “Without diving straight into a history lesson, the Stimulator is one of the most popular and effective flies on the planet, and it has been fished in about every river in the country for multiple decades. It can be tied in almost any size and color, and there are many variations and add-ons that you can add to help match the hatch and float higher. I used to absolutely hate tying these until a friend asked me to tie him a few dozen with a wrapped foam body, and I realized that I probably didn’t have the proportions correct or the right materials for the first few that I tied.”
