How to Fish Stonefly Nymphs

The main technique when stonefly nymph fishing is to try to imitate the natural behavioral drifting of real insects down the bottom of the stream and keep the fly on the trout’s eye level. Drag-free dead drifting along the bottom is the best option. Start with an upstream short cast to allow the fly to drop to the bottom, then dead drift down the current until it starts lifting up to the surface. Extending the drift downstream as long as possible would pay off. Using a strike indicator is recommended as it can greatly help in identifying the action.

To learn more about stoneflies, their lifecycle, how they look at each stage, and how to fish stonefly patterns, read our article Stonefly Life Cycle & Fly Fishing Stonefly Patterns.

  1. Corey

    Before using this product I absolutely hated tying stone flies. Fiddling around with turkey tail wing cases drove me nuts and made me dread sitting down to fill my boxes. With the Hemingways Realistic stonefly buds and backs I no longer have any problem sitting down to tie a dozen nymphs to stock my boxes for trout and steelhead. These buds and backs are easy to use, durable and really make the fly pop and look amazing.

    These buds and backs are absolutely FISH FOOLERS. Someone’s video suggested using crazy glue on the buds. If that tickles your fancy, ok, but try thick CA (crazy) glue from a woodworking retailer. It will stay on top of the dubbing. However, wait for it to dry. The accelerator removes the graphics.

    Buds and back = Fantastic Fish Foolers

  4. Fish Whistle (verified owner)

    These are totally awesome. Very durable, super real look. Makes for a very fun tie. Pick the color that works for your water and try them out. Don’t forget to buy some realistic legs and tails to go with them.

  5. Richard Roy (verified owner)

    Easy to use and make great fish foolers. So realistic!

  6. Kenneth (verified owner)

    Easy to use and does the job, when it comes to tying stone flies this is by far the easiest way to tie them! Pair this with some of their realistic stone fly legs and realistic stonefly tails and you got yourself and awesome fly that will catch fish all day!
