Speckle Leg Double Bead Stonefly Nymph, Black
Giant salmonflies are normally a three year life cycle. During most of their lives these insects crawl around on the bottom of the river devouring vegetable matter. They are black in color with few markings of other colors. However, years ago, some anglers noted that the addition of white legs made large black nymphs more effective. That is how the Girdle Bug fly became famous. In certain colors of water the striped legs probably show up better and are easier for trout to see.
