“I especially enjoy fly fishing for wild trout in May; many streams in Georgia are home to wild, annually reproducing trout. A large percentage of these streams are also home to the stonefly. This nymph is perfect for representing the nymph stage of the stonefly.  If you need to represent the adult stage, I suggest using a stimulator.” -JB
