Mercer’s Epoxy Back Golden Stone
Mercer’s Golden Stone has become a steadfast fly on the South Platte through Cheesman Canyon and Deckers (and anywhere else where golden stones are prolific). This fly is effective in a variety of situations and size should be matched to flow and water clarity (bigger dirtier water=bigger fly).
