I have not fished or tied in months. I usually have an idea of what I want to fish before I go. So I'll tie a few flies if I need them. I figure I'm going to do a lot of nymphing tomorrow. So I tied up a couple. I also tied some Hopper Juan's in case I want a dry that can float a heavy nymph. Well, here goes. These are the best of the bunch. They'll fish, even if they are not very purdy.

Hopper Juan, I like this fly. I'm interested to see how it fishes. Size #10

Stonefly. Size #10. I just did not have all the materials to do the Boss Hog exactly right. I guess it's just a rubber legged stone then. This particular one is heavy, tungsten bead and a strip of lead weight down each side. It also gives it a flat and wide profile instead of just round.

Flashback Hares Ear. Some flashy dubbing and flash back on this one. Size #14.

Thanks. It's UTC D rib. Amber color, nymph size. It's a bit small and hard for me to get the round side up. I think the fly has the flat side up. :oops: Looks good anyway. And I lost the biggest fish of the day on one of these Tue. About a 16" wild brown that looked a bit like a football. :shock:

Got any xtras? That stone looks good enough to eat. ;) Use it as a top bug, use the flashback as the bottom. I'll row the boat.

Thanks guy.

I had that rig for one hole on the trip I tied these for. Cast #1 at the base of the falls, bite, snapped off the BHHE. Cast # 3 it bit the stone. It came unbuttoned because I could not figure out how to get back down the the water quick enough. Looked to be a 16" brown shaped a lot like a football. I have been thinking about walking back in there just to get another shot at that one!

As for the hopper, I now know that brown trout and horny heads will smash it on top! :D I think I finally have a go to hopper pattern.
