I agree that the early black stones excite the fishermen much more than the fish, most times.


Completely agree.

I use a fluttering caddis pattern tied in all gray. Works quite well.

The early stoneflys are certainly not a hatch that I would plan a fishing trip around. But there are times when the fish do take them on the surface.
Usually when I'm out fishing BWO's in late feb and march. And I'll notice the fish suddenly start making splashy rises - instead of the usual dainty sips they make to the BWO's.
Many times I've had just 1 or 2 fish decide to start eating stoneflys - and I had to switch over to catch them. While all of the other fish in the pool stayed on the BWO's

most times the fish are taking egg layers with a splashy riseform. I tie a sz 18 gold pupa hook with a white bead resembling the egg cluster 4" behind the early stone fly adult . 90% of time they take the egg cluster. for other stoneflys/caddis/mayflies i use different colors to match natural
b.w.o.=blk or dk. green

Yep, that is a good idea. way to go Bob. You could make the dry bounce around as well.

I remember reading an article by Art Lee about mayfly eggs patterns several years ago.

Delaware River in Upper Bucks Cty. has a humungous hatch of stones this time of the year. But the best hatch and rising I've ever seen for them has been on the Perky.
