Fishing With Big Bugs

If you’ve ever wondered why a rubberleg stonefly nymph is a popular pattern these days, just use your net to dredge up a pack of decaying leaves and twigs from an eddy and sort through it. You’ll likely discover these big ole vegetarians in that brown buffet line.

And with a big profile and more calories than an itty bitty midge, stonefly nymphs will attract attention from the bigger fish in the pool. Stonefly nymphs- don’t leave home without them this winter and spring.
Call or come by Unicoi Outfitters (706-878-3083) if you need to restock your box.
