UV Yellow Sally
The pattern features a yellow ribbed body, Lifeflex legs and tails, a UV Ice dubbing thorax, and has a bead at the head for fast sinking. Turkey biot sections are used for the wingcase. You can use this pattern almost any time of the year but it is particularly effective in late Spring and throughout the Summer. Usually found in mid- to high-elevation streams with rocky bottoms and fast currents. Like typical stoneflies, the larvae crawl upon the rocks and emerge from their shucks at dawn, sometimes dusk. The adults take to air flight as the temperatures rise. Males and females converge during the day mating. Females return in late afternoon and through the evening hours laying eggs. Good hatches on the East Carson (June-Sept), Feather River (May-July), and Truckee (June-Aug).
