Tying with Hans- Rusty RS2
The Rusty RS2 a take on Rim Chung’s famous pattern. The main element shared with the original RS2 is the wing style.
It is not a tough tie, but it has proved to be a good pattern for trout feeding on baetis emerging nymphs.
This has been very effective in small sizes 20-24.
The RS2 is a proven pattern. Time after time it fools picky fish. Luckily for fly tiers, it isn’t too tough of a fly to tie. Perfect fly to imitate emerging baetis ascending to the surface.
