Here's a stonefly softie tied by Colin:

Yes... He knows that there is no emerger stage of a stonefly's life cycle. Happily, the trout do not know this.

What's up with the blue flies lately? I was talking to Bo yesterday and he said he's had a run on blue material. What gives? My only guess is DH fish. Which that one will catch, heck it'll take some wild ones too. Or are the bugs turning blue now? It's been cold lately. :lol:

There does seem to be a thin blue sheen to this stonefly, but not by design. It's mostly the way that my camera captured it. It's a black stonefly softie. I have heard that blue works during cold weather months. Seems like Harvey or Marty used to tout a blue nymph in the Winter, but I can't remember what it was called.

Jule:

Hareline brand 'Ice Dub' dubbing in gray or dun colors give a wonderful hint of blue sparkle to the collar or thorax to small winter midges. They're also easily blended with black dubbing if darker shades are desired. Costs about $2.50 a package.

Jule,

Bo carries Ice Dubbing. I have been using the peacock color for Prince Nymphs for 4-5 years now and it fishes well.
