Dumb one I suppose but that's never stopped me.
Wouldn't heavily weighted ,bottom scouring nymphs,such as stoneflies ride point up?
Nice ties by the way.

I have no idea Pete, maybe someone with a little more knowledge could chime in.

I think they do,that's why Brooks preferred to tie them in the round.
However,it ain't gonna sell.Trout don't really care.Just having fun with you.

I hope it does ride point up, less snags with all of that weight.

Well, I tried thinking about this logically...
Do I snag stoneflies on the bottom?
Yes, Quite often actually.
Well then, I must have the hook riding point down at some points.
What could we do to fix that while maintaining a nymph-ular shaped body?
You could attach a piece of lead wire on either side of the hook shank, making the body flat. Then, you could take a final piece of lead wire and put it on the top of the hook. That'll make the fly ride like a clouser minnow, less snags, and hopefully more fish; Theoretically. But, then its not as flat...then just kinda smush it down, the weight will still be there. Just my thoughts. Let me know what you think about what I think I thought.

You probably don't snag nearly as many that just tick off the bottom.
Much like fishing plastic on jig heads over oyster bars..they ride point up but you will snag once in a while.Point down,everytime.
I could be wrong but physics would say if body density[weight] exceeds point,the body will go first.
I am probably wrong,again.lol

Looks like an old Russian airplane I once flew on when I was in Mongonlia! Nice fly I would just do the leggs short to long like the real baby.

Nice tie. I'm going simple with my large stone fly patterns this winter. Bead head, lead wrap, chenille body (brown, black, variegated (sp.) brown/yellow), rubber legs of various colors. Like the ones with the flecks of flash in them. Something easy that I won't mind losing. Love to tie woven bodies but hate losing them to snags.

On your tail, dubbing ball can help, but also look at the curve of the biots. Take each biot and tie it so it curves outward. This will help them not clump together.


Looks like you spent some time to increase the length of the biots on the side for the legs. I don't think that's all that important. You can see on the natural that all the legs are pretty much the same length. That may catch some fisherman's eyes, but if it takes extra time and doesn't really matter, then scrap it. That's my philosophy in most of my ties.

Saw this in another forum and thought I'd post it here. Perhaps everyone would enjoy it. It really emphasizes the big and wide traits we were talking about.
