Sierra UV "Dubbing" StoneWorm by Richard

I am soooo excited! I finally found UV dubbing and not just UV chenille. Actually, I may have found a way to make it yourself (subject of another post). The black UV dubbing I used for this "StoneWorm" I actually found in the fly tying section of the fly shop at Cabelas and was made by Hareline. Tying instructions are embedded. Actually this is the first time I have used this format on my blog. Please let me know if you have any trouble seeing or reading. Don't forget to click on individual photos to enlarge.

Richard (Sierra) turned me on to this UV worm fly sometime back and swears by it. I can't wait to try it out after snow melt. Right now it is snowing--again! Looks like a great fly though.

As I tie my flies, I am always thinking of ways to improve. For instance, the first time or two I tied this one, my lateral legs were too far back--so I changed. The "Z" tubing on the body did not go forward enough--so I changed. This is obviously a sinking fly, so I may actually add a bead head occasionally and see how it does. Variations to all flies are countless. Simply go to Big Y (where I buy flies I don't want to tie or don't tie very well) and see just how many eponyms are attached to variations of flies today. Use your imagination.

Hard takes, tight lines and dream of those huge trout to come.
