The Stimulator

As I was searching yesterday, I realized I had somehow failed to show one of the most effective flies in the NW for cutthroat trout.

#1-Wrap thread length of hook and
add hackle for tail.

#3-Body dubbing of choice 2/3rd's
of hook length.
That fly is the STIMULATOR! Here it is tied in the conventional yellow form but I often use gold. And I frequently find this color draws more strikes.
Stimulators mimic either salmon flies, stoneflies or hoppers or all three. Anyway you slice it, it really
is a GREAT fly.

#4-Wrap hackle forward and secure.

#5-Add Elk hair past tail &
run hollow hairs forward. Secure
behind hook eye for added floatation.
It can be tied with any color dubbing so look carefully at your local flies particularly in the spring and early summer. But in fact they really work great most of the year.

#6-Add more dubbing forward.
Can even change the color
or make two-tone.

#7-Wrap GRIZZLY hackle
forward and secure behind eye.
Whip finish behind eye.
Even in the fall, if you use smaller hooks, the fish believe they are the caddis you see on some warm fall days. Try size #14 nymph hook or smaller for the caddis. Here they are tied on #10 nymph hook which tends to be the optimum spring/summer size.

Good luck and enjoy.
