Black Conehead 20 Incher Stonefly Nymph - The Best Stonefly Nymph Pattern

The profile on this fly is ideal!

This fly is a great all around Stonefly Nymph, which works ALL YEAR. Stoneflies live a on a 2-4 year life cycle which means there are various sizes and species of stoneflies in the river all year long. This fly makes a particularly good Skwala Stonefly Nymph. These bugs migrate into the shallows early in the spring on many western rivers and the big trout prey on these tasty vittles. It is important to have a variety of weights on your stoneflies, we like to fish unweighted flies in areas that have a lot of sticks along the bottom and then use heavier patterns in the faster currents when it is critical for the fly to get down into the bottom half of the water column.

Be sure to adjust your depth as necessary, and consider an adjustable indicator setup like a Thingamaleader system.

Stonefly Nymphs are a Proven Pattern

The 20"er Stone is called a 20"er for a reason! This fly will catch big wise river trout that can only be caught on very natural patterns and the Peacock used in this tie will fool even the most selective trout. The Peacock will shine almost every color in the light spectrum, giving this fly a "buggy" look that cannot be captured by artificial materials. It is a great fly and certain to help fill your photo album with pictures of 20" trout!

High Stick Nymphing Tips and Video

High stick nymphing is also done with a strike indicator and is deadly on big rivers where fast currents suck your line underwater! Some of the biggest trout live in water that has whirlpools and harsh seamlines. Learn how to high stick nymph by raising your rod up high and preventing drag from occurring when the line is sucked underwater. This is very effective, especially with rods longer than 9'.

    Worked well for me today! March 22, 2014
    Reviewer: ventura1975 from Sand Point, ID  
    The blond haired guy with the beard showed me this pattern and said the guides that day had been buying these like crazy.  I got three of these and lost 2 in the morning which left me with only 1 left.  The fishing either turned on or I got to the right spot because the fish started hammering this fly. I even got rid of the small dropper that was trailing behind it!  I used it about 6 feet below an indicator in big pools.  It seemed like getting it right near the bottom was deadly.  I eventually lost my last one and had a very tough time catching any fish after that so now i am getting a dozen.
