Tying the Glass Stone fly Nymph
The glass golden stone was developed on an idea sparked in my head from a customer of ours. (thanks Joe!) This fly is very subtle and streamlined to match a variety of yellow sally nymphs we have in Colorado trout streams. Give it a shot next time you find yourself fly fishing the South Platte, Arkansas River, Eagle River, or Roaring Fork.
