Split Back Baetis Nymph Tying Materials

The Tungsten Split Back Baetis is one of our most successful flies in the Black Hills in the summertime. Our Rapid Creek Tailwater fish go absolutely nuts for this fly when the Blue Winged Olives are active! This is a great fly anywhere there's Baetis nymphs, which is just about everywhere trout live. It fishes great as a dropper below a dry fly, or tied behind a heavier nymph. Tie a few up, you won't be disappointed!
