These have the perfect silhouette. When you say small stuff, what size do you mean?I'd like to know if these work as I've never taken a steelie on a stonefly representation. They look great, just like the stones in my local streams. Bet they will be dynamite.
Thanks Brooks. Size 12 is small for steelies. I'm going to add this pattern to my stones box. I like the look a lot. I encounter 4 species so I'll add an orange, a tan, and a dark brown/ black thorax along with the golden yellow as in your fly. Wish I would have made this up. I'm very impressed.
