Pattern Description
The Golden Stimulator is a more specific color variation of the standard Stimulator as tied by Randall Kaufmann. This variation matches the smaller golden stone adults so common to the Front Range. This fly incorporates a variety of tying tricks, from the tail spreading egg sack to the Uni-Floss abdomen and is both a great attractor and imitator. I like to fish this fly through broken riffles and pocket water or along the bank from a boat. It has a wide, fish attracting profile and really pulls fish up. Do not limit this fly to the springtime Golden Stone hatch periods only. While it certainly works then it also pulls fish throughout the summer months.
