This Skwala nymph still has a couple months left to go before hatching, but it's still a good representative of its species, which was extremely abundant in my sample for a stonefly of this size. It's obvious why the Yakima is known for its Skwala hatch.

Gorgeous fies, as always, Mark. I love it when you post these up. It motivates me to use wet flies more and gives me many ideas on tying. The color mix on the tups is very much in line with the idea of blending in different colors offered in another thread.
