This ain't your granddaddy's stonefly nymph. Davies' explosion stone features a tan underbody with golden stone dubbing in the thorax, but it's the pearlescent abdomen and wingcase that really makes this pattern explode underwater. Available in size 12.$2.25 Add to cart
Morrish's Iron Sally is a sparse, durable, and highly effective yellow sally nymph that continues to produce for us year after year. It features folded wing cases, six legs, antenna, and strong counter shading which has made it a staple throughout the western states. This is one nymph we don't leave home without during the months of June and July on the Madison. Available in size 16.$2.25 Add to cart

This pattern is tied with the realism and attention to detail that you would expect from Oliver Edwards, and works great for imitating small to medium Pteronarcys nymphs and other black stoneflies. Available in size 8 (Barbless).$2.50 Add to cart
The tungsten yellow sally has been one of our top nymphs in May through the first two weeks in July for several years now, and we're convinced they eat this fly for molting juvenile golden stones as well as yellow sallies. Instructions: 1. Tie on 2. Hold on. Available in Size 16.$2.50 Add to cart
The Copper King is a cool little variation on the Copper John, with the added realism of a Spirit River Nymph Back over the wing case. This seems to work particularly well as a yellow sally nymph, but it also doubles as a great attractor. Available in size 16.
The Arizona Prince is yet another spin on one of the most effective attractor style flies on the planet-- The Prince Nymph. Clark "Cheech" Pierce came up with this pattern a number of years ago, and it has been a very productive attractor pattern for us on the Madison, and seems to work extremely well as a yellow sally nymph as well. Color: Tan. Available in sizes 14-16.$2.25 Select options
The Telico Nymph was created in the smoky mountains of eastern Tennessee somewhere around 1927, and has remained a southern staple for close to ninety years. This pattern doesn't seem to imitate anything in particular, but trout seem to love it nonetheless. We typically do best on this fly from mid May through the first week in July on the Madison, which suggests that they take it for a yellow sally nymph amongst other things. Whatever they take it for, the telico nymph has been one of our best kept secrets in the shop for years now and it will probably prove equally as effective on your home waters.
