This is the “Bead Head Stone, Rubber Legs” pattern from the first edition of Matt Supinski’s Steelhead Dreams. My spies in Pulaski tell me that this time of year, big stones with wiggly jiggly legs are all the rage, so I tied up a few (along with some long-legged Kaufmann Stone variants) to have in my box.
Nice Dylan reference.
We try to reference the classics from time to time…
I will tie a mixed dozen (sizes) before leaving CT for western waters. Thanks for the inspiration.
Glad to be of service. I usually don’t fish flies with rubber legs, but I’m willing to be swayed.
Good lookin’ fly right there.
I don’t know what it s about black stones up there, but that’ll work.
Give us a report when you get back.
Oh, you can count on it. I’m expecting lots of slowness….
