Default Rubber legged stimi

One of my favorite indicator flies. Casts well, floats well and catches fish. The rubber legs should make it even more enticing. I also use alot of CDC for an under wing which keeps it floating high for a long time.

Hook: Size 10 curved shank stone fly hook
Thread: Fire orange 6/0 and black 8/0
Tail: Elk hair stacked
Body: Fire orange waxed thread
Ribbing: Grizzly and Brown dry fly hackle
Underwing: Light brown CDC feathers
Overwing: Elk hair stacked
Legs: Speckled tan centipede legs
Thorax: Bright orange pseudo seal dubbing
Thorax Hackle: Grizzly dry fly hackle

Great fly. I've been rising one I bought to wild fish, but recently got a few hooch browns.
I can't tie dries, but wish I could

One of my favorites as well.

True story..I was fishing I don't believe I Said Creek, not having a lot of luck. A true Rabunite came by and said "Throw sumpthin yaller, they love yaller." and kept going. I tied on a yellow stimmie, and immediately got into fish.
Yaller is my go-to color in the mountains.

Default Beautiful!

I would bet that a change of color to yellow or chartreuse for the head would be perfect for GSMNP as well! Nice tie! RCB.
