Tying the Giant Vinyl Rib Stone from Tyler Legg on Vimeo.
Alright guys, I'm letting the cat out of the bag (or the trout out of the net...however you want to word it). I've received a lot of requests on how to tie the GVRS. I developed this fly back in November of 2009. I first tied it with biots for the tail/legs, but eventually I upgraded to the material all fly fisherman have come to love: round rubber legs. The killer movement of the ostrich herl and the long rubber legs, makes this fly dance in the water. The GVRS serves as an excellent representation of a giant stonefly nymph. Fish it alone or tie on a dropper. Stonefly nymphs are found on the bottom of the river, so make sure you put a heap of weight on this fly. Also, a lot of folks have commented on the foam. While it does seem counterintuitive to use highly buoyant 2mm, close-celled foam on a nymph, I'll tell you that it doesn't really affect the way this bug fishes. Foam forms tiny air bubbles when submerged, which in turn imitate the small bubbles you sometimes see on stonefly nymphs. The amount of weight you add to this fly, drops it look a rock. The faster you get a stonefly nymph to the bottom of the river, the better. Modify the colors/size to imitate a certain species of m in your nymphs in my opinion. stonefly (ie add a little orange for a Pteronarcys Salmonfly, or, on add a little yellow for a Golden). Fun to tie and fun to fish!
