Jo's flies - Day 5.

Brown Stone - This Josephine Sedlecky-Borsum tie is NOT brown NOR is it a stonefly pattern! It's actually tied to imitate the Michigan Hexagenia hatch and is a fine fly for browns. On special orders Jo would tie this pattern up to a 1 size hook. This is one of her VERY few patterns that did not use the Mustad 94840 hook.
