Baetis Nymph

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!!

Great match for the BWO nymph. Do you use clear tubing? Is your blog still current?
