The Stonesickle Nymph

Curtis Fry - April, 2018

Our stonefly specialist, Tim Sickles, is at it again with a great stonefly nymph. Great for Skwalas, Goldens or matching it to your hatch, it's a straightforward tie and offers up a wonderful buggy profile. Plus, it's hefty enough to fish on a Euro nymph rig or you can fish it on an indicator rig. And don't worry...the inclusion of foam will be just fine to keep this bug still looking and acting like a nymph.
