Adult Stonefly Nymph Rubber Legs 3 colours


Product Information

Just arrived instore and online lots of exciting new patterns, Adult Stonefly Rubber Legs 3 colours 
Stoneflies are found in all waters worldwide .Often called the "year-a-round-fly", stoneflies are active all year round and are an important insect. Due to this most species just crawl along the bottom on to rocks at the shoreline to hatch, fish will feed on them all year and especially large sized nymphs will seldom be ignored by a hungry trout.

Stoneflies can be among the largest insects in a creek or stream. Most stonefly nymphs, despite their fierce appearance, eat plant matter. However, many species are predatory, feeding on other aquatic insects and larvae. Stoneflies typically prefer rocky, stony or gravel substrata, with more species frequenting cooler, swifter water. Studies have shown that different species prefer different living conditions, for example under rocks or in plant decay.
Stoneflies are so large that they represent a lot of protein to a trout trying to pack on weight. A stonefly nymph or adult, for example might provide the equivalent nutrition of 100 lesser insects. And stoneflies, unlike other insects, crawl across the river bed and to up the banks, where they sit stationary until they are able to break out of their exoskeleton and emerge as a winged adult.
Anyone who has fished a stonefly hatch will tell you that it can be among the best of life’s fishing experiences. As these adults drop to the water to lay eggs, and as they fall into the water, the trout activity can become furious. To throw the right imitation into that boiling cauldron can hook you into lunkers that typically don’t feed with such abandon. It is prime time fishing!
