The Story

Larry Larsen developed this pattern on the South Fork of the Snake for the Jackson Hole One Fly event in 2005. Originally called the "Deep Throat," the fly was designed to ride a little lower than standard "Cherb" style bugs as well as be lighter. Big cutthroat approaching flies from below would open their mouth's to inhale the bug and if it was a high floater or had too much mass, they would refuse, but this fly solved the problem. The Legend is a great nocturnal stone pattern as well as Golden, Skwalla, and Salmon Fly. Cast close to structure and "twitch" with this pattern. Great "pressured water" fly for selective trout or late season. Grease the wing and fish dry or with dropper.

Sizes 8, 12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Really Well My wife and I caught 6 steel head trout on the Snake River using this stone fly. I lost one so this one is the replacement. This fly works really well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bug Great fly. Works wonders on both the South Fork and the Henrey's Fork. Unique design fools even the most pressured fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This fly catches fish This fly was amazing for the selective fish on the snake this summer. When other stonefly patterns wouldn't work, this would on the henrys and the south fork. Good all around pattern, and it also seemed to last pretty well. Buy at least a dozen or you'll wish you did when you run out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watvh out toothy critters! Best dry pattern in my box, bar none! Fishes so much more effectively than any other Cherb pattern I've tried. I suggest putting a few in your fly box... you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Golden Stone! I've used this pattern for the last two months on the Yakima River in WA, the St. Joe in ID, and a planned trip to the Kootenai in MT this weekend. The fish can't seem to stay away from it - rides low, like a golden should as they emerge from the water - very realistic. Great as a dry alone, for bead-head droppers too. Great fly!
