I’ve been busy tying a few dry flies for my small creek fly box and these Yellow Sally flies are great for covering the Isoperla that hatch late April – August. The Sallies are a smaller species of stoneflies that hatch along with mayfly species and can be overlooked. I tie this using sulfur, pale morning dun, pale evening dun and other shades of yellow dubbing.
