Tuesday Tutorial: Beatnik Stone Nymph

Tying season is well upon us these days, with the most recent blast of arctic air creating enough ice to throw the fishing off for a bit until it settles in. That floating near-ice stuff is the worst, and it always guarantees the air temp is well below your guides freezing up point. So, inside with the vise we go. While a lot of my stonefly nymph selection these days is covered by the old rubberlegs, I still like to get fancy on a few stonefly nymphs and in the right situation the slimmer, more detailed flies are going to get it done. This offering from Weston Thier over at Montana Troutfitters in Bozeman is a lot of fun. A great variation on a golden stone to try while the rivers freeze up.
