The Wired Stone

Posted by Steve Galea at

The Wired Stone is a heavy stone fly pattern that's not all that difficult to tie. It is a decent pattern when you need to get a fly down deep quickly. I tied a few of these tonight for the first time in size 8. I crowded the bead a bit but it will fish nicely. The next dozen will be better.

The recipe is as follows.

Hook: Streamer hook

Bead: to match hook size

Thread: 6/0 to match the pattern.

Tail: Goose biots

Abdomen: Wire in one or two shades.

Shell back: Bugskin

Dubbing: to match fly

Legs: Goose biots

 I forgot to add that you weight it with lead wire under the thorax.
