The Floss Body Stimi Fly Pattern Tutorial

As with many patterns, there are hundreds of variations due to the availability of new product materials and creativeness being shared around the world.  That being said, one of my favorite ways to tie the Stimulator Fly is using Floss by Semperfli for the main body.  It is simple, clean, and has a unique property when wet that has proven itself on the water to be a great meal for a rising trout.  Plus the floss comes in about 20 or so colors so color combinations are endless. 
The Stimulator is a pattern that is used to imitate stoneflies or caddis fly.  A pattern developed in the 1980s by Jim Slatterly and later modified Randall Kaufmann of which is widely used today.  It’s known to catch fish and do it often
Tie some up in your favorite colors and have a lot of fun watching it get smashed.
