Tying the Little Black Stone

Little Black Stone



The Little Black Stone hatch has a very short window in the northeast.  However, the fish seem to remember it. This pattern works very well during the hatch and throughout much of the early spring, but truly shines in the winter months Jan-Mar during the pre-hatch period.
