Squatchy B Stonefly Nymph

Maximum Movement Stonefly

The effectiveness of the Pat's Rubber Legs is known industry wide, so as I do with lots of already popular patterns, I make subtle (or not so subtle) tweaks to them.  This one uses one of the best long shank jig hooks I've seen in a long long time, a very interesting hackling technique, and a small bit of flashy dubbing.  Mix up the colors and happy fishing!!

P.S. The Squatchy Bas%$rd is a nickname for one of my current co-workers.  He's very very Squatchy.
