Post Stoneflies: "little-greens" [6/5/10]

I noticed several of these stoneflies, the "little-greens" on the Clinch yesterday evening.

I have been throwing the nymph version with very effective results this year.

I tie it with: a gold bead on the 2/3 part of the shank with a pheasant tail, dub the abdomen with grey dubbing and wrap it loosely with orange stretch tubing to the bead. I wrap hackle ahead of the bead with more grey dubbing and then a head. Throw it ahead of a drift and the fish will eat it up Seems like the brookies like it the most for some odd reason...
