4 Top Stone Fly Nymphs For Fly Fishing Patagonia
There are tons of stone fly nymphs in the rivers of Patagonia and having a fly box stuffed full of these trout snacks is something that you should consider mandatory in your arsenal while on a trip with Patagonia Trout Adventures. We love to fish with nymphs and one of our favorite tactics while on the river is to throw a big foam dry fly and hang a big juicy stone fly nymph off the bend of the hook at about twenty inches. We are going to list today four of our favorite tried and true stone fly patterns that have been responsible for countless fish over the 20" inch mark. Check'em out. We think that you will agree.
Pat's Rubberleg Stonefly
The Pat's Rubber Legs is a great stonefly nymph pattern that simply puts a lot of fish in the boat. Fish this fly under a dry fly or an indicator as a nymph or behind a streamer when fishing from a boat and reap the rewards. The Super Floss legs flex pulse in the current adding life to the fly, and the plus side is that you can change the chenille color to match any shade of stonefly. Black, brown and coffee are all solid choices when fly fishing in Patagonia, Chile.
The Double Bead Twenty Incher Stonefly
The Double Bead 20 Incher Stone is a great fly for Patagonia and sinks like a bomb once hitting the water thus getting you down in the strike zone quickly. We like fishing this pattern under a dry fly or behind a streamer when fishing from a boat. The effectiveness of this fly is undeniable and you will want to make sure you are loaded with a handful of twenty inchers loaded in your fly box.
Delektable Mega Prince Stonefly
The Mega Prince is one of our favorite stonefly nymphs and performs extremely well in a dry/dropper combination and has been one of our go to patterns for many years in Patagonia. It is heavily weighted, realistic, and is a fish catching machine. The creator of the fly is Dan Delekta over on the Madison River and this pattern has been proven throughout the west and Patagonia and continues to be a top fly for many top pro fly fishing guides.
Gold Bead Rubber Leg Bitch Creek Stonefly
The Bitch Creek stone fly has been around for a long time and their is a reason. Most people have forgotten about it's mesmerizing powers that it seems to cast upon trout. It has many things that add to it's effectiveness but we think the white rubber legs and the realistic profile of the fly are it's key highlights. We also love that it is heavily weighted, has a gold bead, and two different contrasting colors of orange and black chenille that give off a very natural look to the fly.
