KaufmannBlack StoneflyTwelve FliesHook Size:10This is a standard pattern on the Deschutes River in Oregon where the inventor, Randall Kaufmann, does a lot of his fishing.It now has become the most popular stonefly nymph pattern in the waters here in the West. The dressing on our pattern imitates the nymphs of both the common golden stones and willow flies. It can also be used to imitate mature nymphs of the little yellow stones. These big insects are prolific in most cold, clean streams of the West. Due to their size they become a staple in the diet of large trout. This pattern will work for steelhead as well. Juvenile steelheads gorge themselves on stonefly nymphs and then later in life when they return as adults.Salmonfly nymphs live on the bottom, crawling around on rocks and in the spaces between rocks. They require well-oxygenated water, so they thrive in fast, riffled stretches of the river. The stonefly nymphs crawl shoreward, emerging from the water during the early morning hours. The nymphs cling to shoreline root-wads, rocks and vegetation as the exoskeleton splits, revealing the winged adults. During the morning, adults crawl into the shoreline vegetation. Then, during the afternoon, adults fly out over the water to lay their eggs. The afternoon/evening ovipositing flights sometimes feature thousands of air-born insects over the river. The smaller stonefly nymphs will migrate to shore before emergence. Get your nose to the water and examine the rocks and vegetation for small stones. If they are present in fair numbers, fish the shoreline with one of the smaller stone fly patterns. Most often you will catch trout right along the shoreline and above and below boulders.Trout can be selective to the larger stonefly nymphs when a migration is heavy. Tumble your nymph down the current seams and fast water near shore. Drift these nymphs on the bottom, and you will catch fish. If you are not tight to the bottom, you are not deep enough. Stonefly nyphs are very poor swimmers and often loose their foolting in fast water and drift into the mouth of a waiting trout.Many times a trout will take your offering just as you start to lift your rod tip at the end of the drift. Use this pattern in faster moving water, year around, for quick vicious strikes.Add flies & leaders to any order& we won't increaseyour shipping cost!* Free Priority Mail, Insuranceand no sales tax on all orders over $99 (USA only).
