Fishing Strategy:

The Two Bit Stone is an exceptional stonefly imitation and is a great option as an attractor in a traditional nymphing setup.  We typically fish a Two Bit Stone under a yarn indicator with droppers underneath.  This stonefly imitation fishes well under a wide range of conditions but remains most effective during the summer months.  We believe this is one of the most successful golden stonefly patterns to fish throughout both western and eastern tailwaters.
