The Story

Another super realistic stonefly pattern which is an excellent fly for the early season when trout are just beginning to feed aggressively after the winter. Crawl this fly along the bottom as if headed for the water's edge. One of the most realistic patterns out there. Color, Black.

In sizes: 8, 10, 12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ted's Black Stone #10 First late evening fishing caught several bluegill, crappie, largemouth bass, and one wiper. The following late evening caught several bluegill, largemouth bass, and 2 walleyes (15 and 19.5 inches).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same as pictured online This fly is all black on the under belly with black legs. The one pictured on line had golden legs and a green wrap around the belly. Ted's golden stone is also pictured wrong on the website. There is no yellow in it at all and the legs are olive green. They need to update the pictures. This is why I don't like to buy online cause sometimes you get something completely different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Cast of the Spring I liked the way this stone fly looked online. I needed something different in my flybox, because I have been fishing the same stretch of river for years. My first cast, I let it settle for a couple of seconds and start to drift, two short strips and Bam-Fish On. After a short fight, I landed a nice small-mouth. Everything was hitting this fly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An ice fishing experiment GONE WILD Don’t know why. Don’t care. This caught 17 sunfish and crappie in western Minnesota this past weekend. I fed 6 adults and two children for a fish fry and it was wonderful.
