Stimulator Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Stimulator is an amazing fly pattern developed by fly tying legend Randall Kaufmann.  The Stimulator was originally developed to imitate a stonefly adult.  But that is not the only insect the Stimulator imitates.  The Stimulator also emulates a grasshopper, caddis or even large drake mayflies!  The Stimulator is also a great dry fly for fishing a dropper underneath.  The bushy profile and deer hair make the Stimulator a highly buoyant fly.  The Stimulator is most often tied in olive, orange, black and yellow.  Usually tied in sizes #06-16.
