Video: Tying a Knuckle Dragger Golden Stone

I would like to share one of my top three flies for the 2018 fishing season, the Knuckle Dragger. When used with a loop knot to attach the fly to your leader and imparting a gentle jigging motion with the rod will activate a lively swimming action which is aided by the longer front legs. If you have ever seen a golden stonefly nymph swim, you will understand the importance of how this jig pattern behaves while being fished under tension, they are swift and agile swimmers.
