The Story

Oliver Edwards is a legend in England and the realism of his flies has drawn legions of anglers to his patterns and techniques. This little black stonefly pattern is so perfect in its representation that put next to the real thing, even the fish can't tell the difference. In black.

In sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tie Nicely tied for such a small fly. Imitates tiny winter stones very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Black Stone Fly I use the little black stonefly mostly in Fall- Spring in Maryland trout streams. They are well put together and stand up to snags & hang ups. Sometimes they even catch fish! LOL
