Default Stimi

This guy had an orange and yellow ab/thorax. I guess it is why we tie the stimi? Stone fly? I had no clue, but he sure was cool lookin'.

Can't tell unless I see the bottom, but it looks like a yellow sally ,a small stonefly, very common on Little River. Caddis wings fold "moth like" to make a tent, where stoneflies lie flat on top of each other. I've seen pools boil with trout rises in Late May early June evenings about 7:00 till dark when they return to lay eggs.

Yeah, I knew it wasn't a Caddis, but had never ran into a stone fly (that I knew about) that had yellow abs and an orange thorax. If you look closely, you can see the orange. I have just started paying attention to such things in the last year or so. Lots to learn.

No doubt. I would have thought a Sally was smaller, but I do think he called it.

Reminds me of my very favorite dry fly to use in the Park... the good ole irresistible yellow wulff.

BlueRaiderFan-
There is a golden stonefly that is larger (#8 or 10 long shank dry hook )than a Yellow Sally. My Yellow Sallys are 12 to 14. There are at least two species of "Yellow Sallies"-a yellow bodied Yellow Sally and a lime colored Yellow Sally. I'm not sure if the coloration is due to environment but probably different species. The red coloration makes me think Yellow Sally.
