JayB, yes, that is a green stonefly from the Chloroperlidae family. It is some sort of Sallfly. These were much larger than I had ever seen them before, some were close to size 10! Most were in the size 14 range, but they were everywhere from about 9am-11am. I was pretty successful using this as a dry......

That's a great looking fly. Would you mind sharing the recipe?

Thanks

Bill, its just your basic stimulator recipe. The hook is a #12 TMC 200R, which was probably a little big for the stoneflies that were hatching. The body is 1mm green foam with a peel and stick back. I think I got it at hobby lobby. The tail and wing is made of "Elk Hock" by Rocky Mtn Dubbing Co. I use it for all my stimulators, but when I run out, I'm going to be in trouble, because I can't find it anywhere anymore.

I thought that was green foam under there. I cant stand tying stimulators(probably because it seems to take me 20 minutes to tie one, and then its fugly), but I am definitely gonna tie up some big bright green neversink caddis dries for my next big trip out.
