Yellow X Stimulator

The Stimulator is one of the great attractor patterns. The bulk and footprint of this fly on the water help pull trout to it in all water types. This is a great searching pattern that fishes best in the warmer months when there are plenty of caddis, stonefly and terrestrials around.

More fly information...

Stimulators fish well as a single dry and also hold up nymphs really well when fished as an indicator dry fly. They can be fished in all water types but are most productive in fast, broken water. Make sure you don’t fish to finer tippet with this pattern as the heavily hackled body may spin your leader. This pattern is tied on a barbed dry fly hook. We recommend fishing 4x or 5x tippet.
