The El Camino was created by one of my favourite and most respected fly-tyers, Andrew Grillos. Andrew has several patterns tied commercially and chances are you’ve probably fished one or two. This Skwala pattern has an awesome low-riding profile, sitting lower in the water than other similar foam patterns. For Yellow Stones, substitute a few colours and you have yet again, a killer stonefly pattern.
