    Extended body flies are not new in the world of fly fishing and fly

    tying by any stretch, but they have recently become respected standards

    in the volumes of effective fly patterns. Accordingly, it seems every

    seriously fly tyer has developed at least one extended body fly with

    high hopes of cashing in on the craze.

    Nevada-based fly tyer,

    Andy Burk, decided to join in the fun and contribute his Extended Body

    Yellow Stonefly pattern to the mix. As always Burk’s creative use of

    materials and flair for elegance in fly design have placed him at the

    fore of the extended body movement.

    Burk’s Extended Body Yellow Stonefly is a perfect

    imitator of that favorite early season stonefly hatch of little yellow

    stoneflies, commonly known as “Yellow Sallies.” With its innovative and

    realistic red-tipped foam extended body, stiff white hair wing, and

    supportive contrasting hackle, this fly will ride neatly and visibly on

    the water’s surface – just where those hungry trout want it.
    • This fly pattern was developed by professional fly tyer Andy Burk of Reno, Nevada
    • Little yellow stonefly imitation in the adult life stage
    • Use as either an impressionistic searching fly or as a realistic imitation when matching the hatch
    • Drift the fly through different water types; faster riffles and shallower water near the banks of a river with moderate to slow currents are the most productive water types for this fly
    • Little yellow stonefly nymphs are available to trout all year long in trout water throughout North America
    • Most prolific hatches occur during warmer months (June – August)
    • Hatches occur consistently and with long duration throughout the daylight hours
    • Strikes on little yellow stoneflies are often far from subtle because trout must often be prepared to rip these strong crawlers from their rocky homes
    • When approaching a shallow water environment with an adult stonefly, be extremely careful not to spook happily feeding trout – stalking and fly presentations should be stealthy and subtle
    • SIZE 16
    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
