A stone clinger nymph would be a march brown,Olive Uprights, Yellow May’s, August Duns,.

basically the may flyies with large triangular shaped heads and bodies with thick legs. They cling to the rocks on the bottom.

Look up Oliver Edwards stone clinger pattern for a better idea.

You are using British terms. The terms used over there, and the actual bugs, are different than here.

It's better to learn the US bugs, and terms used to describe them.

Here then, a stone clinger would be a nymph that looks like these. Is that american enough troutbert?

Gfen, I want a fly with a little more trainular shape then a common hares ear to mimic these guys. A hares ear will work obviously, but like to have more variety to my nymph box.

When Oliver Edwards is talking about "march brown,Olive Uprights, Yellow May’s, August Duns", he is talking about insects that do not exist in North America.

These exact insects may not exist in the U.S. but we do have stone clinger varieties of mayfly nymphs.

po-tay- toe, po-tot-o, tom- mate-oe /tom-mot-oe, same thing.

a tear drop shaped nymph with a fat head, thick legs, gills on its abdomin, long slender tails, flat profile. you get the gist.

Done explaining things to people who already know exactly what im talking about ;)
