Posts Tagged ‘Baetis Nymphs’

So… I am working on some new Baetis for Fall…This one is made from these materials…It is a pattern that works best on bright, sunny days…when the Bateis hatch is jammin’…but, only for a short while…I am using Lagartun 74 Denier thread in Olive… off the spool, it ties flatter than any thread I have ever used…

A Baetis Nymph…

GLIMMER BAETIS NYMPH

HOOK: Daiichi 1560, # 18. TMC 3761 # 18-#20

THREAD: Lagartun 74 Denier Olive or Gordon Griffiths 14/0 Sheer, Olive

TAIL: Partridge, Olive

RIB: Flasahbou, Opal accent mirage

ABDOMEN: Pheasant Tail, Olive

THORAX: SLF Prism, Brown/Olive

LEGS: Olive Partridge, V notched

WING CASE: 6 strands of Black Krystal Flash

I wanted this little guy to be flashy…for bright days when the hatch is can be over very qiickly. I would use it here, as a dropper off of a October Caddis Pupa…Or, with a Batwing Baetis Emerger in September…

Michael, working some water on the Owens River…

Michael and I saw a Mid September hatch of Baetis, in here, that stared at sun up and lasted for about an hour and a half…there were Trout snouts everywhere…

I have also seen hatches of Olive Baetis on the Madison…in late August…
