A stonefly nymph imitation that merges realistic and impressionistic concepts together to make a rather easy fly to tie. Most of the stonefly nymphs out there are either more impressionistic or extensively elaborate. This merges the two but doesn't take forever to tie. Tie these in sizes 2-10 on a 3x long shank hook. The best color combinations are golden with gold and black wire rib, brown with amber and brown wire, and black with black and gold wire.
