Tactical Fly Fisher notes: “During my steelhead fishing over the last few years there have been two mainstay flies, which are almost always on my rig. The Magneto Stone is one of them. I generally fish it as the top dropper on a two or three fly Euro nymphing or Czech nymphing rig but it would work just as well with a strike indictor rig. In addition to a lot of steelhead, the Magneto Stone has also caught resident rainbow trout, bull trout, whitefish, and smallmouth bass for me.
In this tutorial you will learn how to tie this fly as well as some helpful tying tips for handling rubber legs and making a more durable fly.”
