Stimulator pattern is the only dry fly you'll ever need

According to tyer George Nelson, the Stimulator is the only dry fly you'll ever need. He said guides carry a ton of flies to take clients out, make them feel like they're getting their money's worth. But when they go out fishing themselves, they carry a couple go-to flies. And this blonde-colored stimulator is one of Nelson's picks.

Nelson said it's great for catching summer steelhead on top on the South Santiam River, "but you'd better make sure your heart is in good shape."
