Hans’ Wire Bodied Baetis Nymph
This is a design I have been tinkering with for a while. I like the wire body for weight and segmentation, the wing buds, and the tail leg combo are coming together. Small baetis nymph are a staple of trout diets in our neck of the woods. We are always looking for something else to throw at them. Previous versions of this fly have done well for me and I am looking forward to catching fish on this one. Our baetis nymphs range in size...
CDC Splitwinged Sparkle Dun
Blue Winged Olives (aka Baetis) create superb early and late season hatches. This simple but effective take on the sparkle dun pattern features a split CDC wing. Fish this fly as fish begin to feed on the surface. Its fine if the fly hangs a bit in the film. This fly can even be tied on a curved shank emerger hook to fish as an emerger.
