i will probally get some flack from this, but why does everyone fish a black nymph for the early stones when in fact they are more brownish in color.

I knew some were brown, are there any that is black in color? In the Whiteclay creek we took samples years ago and found very slim black nymphs. Needle fly stoneflies perhaps? I remember several members commenting that they tie the stonefly nymph way to fat.

Ok, for these nymphs it would be better to mix black/brown dubbing that way in different sizes you're covered.

I usually mix several colors for my black nymphs starting with dark hare's mask then some browns , orange, claret, purple, black, etc. and then of course there's the thread color to either lighten it or darken it.

Well I wouldn't exactly call those flies a close match in terms of color either.

To answer your question, I've found black nymphs to be extremely effective. Not just when stones are active, but year round. Particularly in less than clear water, such as we often have in spring.

There it is...........Looks buggy.......the outline/sihlouette is more important than the color....even saf-t orange......when they are looking up into a bright background what they see is a dark/black outline.........motion is the other thing.....skate those orange bastids!!!!!!
