While fishing in Bristol, NH on February 18th, we saw four stoneflies walking on the sun side of small trees.
About 1/2 inches long, dark grey to black.Any ideas about patterns?

Try a very simple black body, clear antron or zlon trude style wing, and black hackle.

This is a pattern I ripped off from a basic stimulator has been a very effective pattern here in the Driftless for little black stones.
