Our Stonefly Imitations (Flies):
Materials Used:

Nymphs:
Our stonefly nymph imitations are the most realistic stoneflies that are sold commercially. We believe
they are
far better than any other ones available on the market in terms of being effective in catching
trout and durability.
Legs and Antennae:
Our stonefly nymph legs and antennae are made from flexible plastic. They don't break when they are
bent. They are durable and last a long time under normal use. If they happen to get bent in a shape that
is unnatural, you can easily bend them back by bending them beyond the point they should end up
in
the direction you want them to go and then letting the them go. Just repeat this procedure until they end
up in the right positions. The lengths of stonefly antennae vary greatly depending on the family. The
length of the antennae on our imitations are sized depending on the actual length of the antennae of the
particular family of stoneflies they imitate.
Tails:
The stonefly nymph tails are made from goose and turkey biots. They are flexible and resist being torn
up or broken easily. They are sized depending on the length of the tails of the particular family of
stoneflies they imitate.
Eyes:
The eyes of the stonefly nymphs are made from monofilament.
Abdomen:
The rugged abdomen material is sized and tapered to be close to the actual width of the
segmentations on the real nymph's abdomen.
Thorax:
The thorax is made from natural dubbing of various types depending on the size of the stonefly nymph.
Wing Pads:
Notice the highly detailed wing pads are made in three separate segments like the real stonefly
nymphs using turkey feathers that have been sealed to make them last longer.

Adults:
Our stonefly adult imitations are the most realistic flies that are sold commercially. We believe that
they are
far better than any other flies on the market in terms of being effective in catching trout,
floatability and durability.

Legs and Antennae:
Like the nymphs, the adult stonefly legs and antennae are made from flexible plastic. They don't break
when they are bend and last a long time under normal use. If they happen to get bent in a shape that is
unnatural, you can easily bend them back by bending them past the point they should end up in the
direction you want them to go and then letting the part go. Just repeat this procedure until they are in the
right positions. The lengths of stonefly antennae vary greatly depending on the family. The antennae are
sized depending on the actual length of the real antennae of the stonefly family they imitate.
Tails:
The adult stonefly tails are made from goose and turkey biots. They are flexible and resist being torn up
or broken easily. They are sized length wise to imitate the actual length of the tails of the family of
stoneflies they imitate.
Eyes:
The eyes of the adult stoneflies are made from monofilament.  
Abdomen and Thorax:
The adult stoneflies abdomens are made from foam. Stoneflies deposit their eggs in the faster water of
the runs and riffles they came from. The foam assures the flies float high in the water and remain the
flies visibility to the angler even in turbulent water.
Wings:
The wings of our adult stoneflies are made from Raffia, sometimes called Swiss Straw. It is resistant to
breaking and splitting. The wings hold their shape well but if they happen to get bent, you can easily
bend and reshape them.
