Tied to get down and dirty, riding low across the water with its rubber legs paddling just through the surface, Ian’s Parachute Golden Stone is one amazingly realistic stonefly pattern! Lacking the hackle wrap of the more common stimulator, this low floating pattern floats down the river like a hapless wildebeest among a group of crocodiles! Trout are looking for an easy meal and this pattern has “easy” written all over it. This pattern is a great imitation for a number of light to golden colored stonefly species found across North America.
