Grannyknot thanks for the kind words but the fish will tell us if they are right for the job.

The stone fly is tied on an aberdeen size 8 for the back hook
the front hook is a size 10 mustad 3366--this is the business end of the
pattern because I remove the hook from the bend

The helgi is tied on an aberdeen size 4 for the back hook
the front hook is a size 6 mustad 3366---this is the business end of the
pattern
both hooks are joined by nylon backing material colored by perma marker
backing seems to last longer and give more movement then mono

thanks be safe
