Tying a Stimulator
In this video Michael Gula demonstrates how to tie a stimulator.  The “stimi” is a go to pattern under a variety of situations.  It can be fished in size 14-18 as a caddis and/or as like a Yellow Sally.  In the larger sizes it can be a bigger golden stone or salmon fly (color to match).
