And their recently introduced Evolution™ Tungsten Beads are available in a wide variety of styles, sizes and colors. Flymen is also introducing a series of flies featuring these new beads including the Evolution™ Stonefly. This realistic looking stone fly pattern was inspired by Kauffman’s Stonefly and is tied in a very similar way. The profile of this popular, proven stonefly pattern is now enhanced by using an Evolution™ Stonefly Tungsten Bead and barred rubber legs to create more action as the fly drifts across the river bed.
