How to Tie a Simple Golden Stone

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tim Flagler offers detailed instructions for how to tie a Simple Golden Stonefly.  As Flagler says: “Over the years I’ve simplified my go-to Stonefly pattern to the point where it now looks like this. I actually believe it’s a more effective fly than previous complicated versions, mainly because I’m not afraid of losing one to the bottom. This is a golden stone but you can basically use the same pattern for black, brown and yellow stones as well.”
