About the Stonefly Trout Fly
The Stonefly is a spider pattern designed to imitate the appearance and movement of stoneflies.
One of the key advantages of the Stonefly Spider is its ability to be fished when needle flies or willow flies are present. Stoneflies are a common food source for many fish species, and the black and natural colouration of the Stonefly make it a highly visible and tempting target for fish, particularly in areas where stoneflies are present.
