Stonefly Flies

The Caddis Fly Shop has a great selection of dry stonefles that are super producers for trout in waters across America and the world..

Stoneflies are a major diet component of trout around the world. Steelhead eat them under the right conditions too.. Like Caddis Flies, micro- to macro-size Stoneflies are incredibly diverse in size, color and behavior. Stoneflies are widely distributed wherever the rivers support trout reproduction, so they are a standard in the fly boxes of trout anglers worldwide. From the blizzard hatches of Little Yellow Stone Flies to the low-floating and ever dependable ClarkÕs Stone, we have the traditional and innovative stonefly patterns to outfit the waters you are planning to fish this year.

True enough, Salmon Fly hatches of the west may seem overly glorified in the fishing literature, but we think we may know why this is so. The sight of a monster rainbow sladhing at a size 4 TerraNasty is parctically a heart-stopper. Our friends at Idylwilde Flies are always coming up with innovative new stonefly patterns, so please feel comfortable calling our shop to see if we have any new Idylwilde patterns that are not in our online catalog.

Our guides love the floatation many of our Stonefly patterns deliver. When fishing a "Stonefly+nymph dropper" rig, a large stonefly pattern will float the nymph, (tied to the hook bend of the dry fly) and give both angler and trout twice the opportunity to say yes, especially when different fish are keying in on different insects.

We invite you to contact our Guides and Pro staff at the Caddis Fly Shop for more info on which stonefly patterns are best for the big fish in the specific waters and season where you are planning to fish this year.
