Tying the Student Dry Fly
The Student is a fly pattern popularized on the Bighorn River. It isn’t much to look at, but like the F-Fly this simple CDC (Cul de Canard) dry fly catches its share of fish. Tie some up for the Baetis Hatch on your trout stream or river, you will be glad you did. This pattern can be altered to match other mayfly species by changing the thread color and hook size.
