“While fishing a small, stonefly filled stream in Wyoming, I discovered that my flies weren’t heavy enough to feed the fish we were after. So, in short, I needed a pattern that could sink very quickly in shallow, faster water. The Rosetta Stoned Stonefly Pattern has been the answer for that particular situation. This Golden Stone Nymph that can be tailored to match the naturals in your area.” – Grant Bench
