Had a hatch at Neshanock today of these, not big, but thanks to the info above from frequent tyer, I threw on a sulfur nymph, and proceeded to catch a handful including a nice sucker.


Those suckers can help fix a skunking, but sometimes when the fish are rising they are darn near impossible to keep off your flies in the right lies. Neshannock is just full of them.

Grannoms on the neshannock are just around the corner!



Great tie frequenttyer. What's the shell back made of?

I believe a saw one today, it was smaller than most of the stones I saw hatching. But we did get quite a few this morning, very crowded though in the few hours I was there.

The nymphs are a bit more stocky then the dries, on the dries you could tie the body with thread and not even dub it, they are that skinny. I tie my early stones sparse and do fine with them.

Here is a pattern I've been working on for these nymphs. It's not as simple but avoids plastic (a personal obsession). Tied on a #16 mustad 37160.

Great use of the 37160! I've only ever tied worms on them! How is the hook set up them? I have yet to land a fish with one.

Not trying to highjack just put my 2 cents in. I've been tying stones on that style hook since the 90's just recently on Eagle Claw Kahle hooks ( found them to be much sharper) Both are offset hooks and I've not had any difficulties with hook sets with them, sure I miss fish but I can miss fish with any hook.

As I mentioned, I have not had much of a chance to try this pattern, but so far no issue with the 37160s. I have used them quite a bit in the past for caddis and don't recall any problems. They are offset as Jack pointed out, and I tweak the offset a bit before I mount the hook in the vise. Kirk (AKA Outsider) originally showed me these hooks for stonefly patterns, and he suggested opening the gap a bit. It seems like a good idea, so I wil try that in the future. I really like the look of the hook, so I think it is worth the extra effort to prep them.
Someone asked about the shell back material. It is teal flank feather that I dyed golden yellow. The black barring in the teal makes a nice effect. Dyed mallard would probably be a reasonable substitute., but strung teal is available and about the same cost as mallard.
