Notes on the Fly

I have been developing a more accurate and easier to tie baetis nymph pattern since last winter, finally this summer I collected a few good samples to match from.  Normally I use a small Pheasant Tail to match a BWO nymph but as you can see below that is not a close representation, and PT take to long to tie.   The new fly is super easy to tie, very durable, and matches the natural nicely.  Give it a try and let me know if you have any questions I would be happy to help.

Your new pattern looks much better. And I'm sure that it will perform better too! Nice tie!!
