  1. The royal stimulator will always have a spot in my heart, I caught a (nice for me) 12 or so inch brookie on the Snowbird with one. I left it on all day and it seemed I could do no wrong.

  2. Orange, Olive and tan are all in my boxes. Rivers that have Smallies and stone flys give the flycaster all the reason they need to carry this pattern, no light tipits are needed.

  3. I can attest to the success of the “Royal” Stimmy. It’s a great fly to cast against the banks of the SF of the Snake during the summer months. I think there’s something about the colors and configuration of “Royal” patterns that trout find strikable. The orange Stimulator is another successful fly when the “Trout Flies” are present.
