Carl’s “D” Rib Golden Stone
-A South Platte River Must Have Fly
Step By Step Tutorial for the “D” Rib Golden Stone Nymph. This nymph was designed for the South Platte River here in Colorado. Mainly the Cheeseman Canyon section. This nymph is working great any where you find golden stone nymphs. I typically fish this nymph as a upper fly on a 2 fly nymph rig. Or I will fish it as the middle fly on a 3 fly nymph rig. The fly is fished dead drift bouncing along the bottom. Enjoy.
