This little pattern is cool! It passes for small baetis nymphs in the smaller sizes and covers the smaller stoneflies in a bit larger sizes. It's also a family simple pattern to tie, If you can tie a PT nymph or Hare's Ear nymph, you will ne able to tie this pattern. I fish it on a 2 nymph rig. It's possible to fish two of these patterns to cover both stones and beats. A lager size 12 or 14 in cream as your first fly and a smaller size 16-20 as your second fly to cover the mayflies. Tied with a Tungsten bead, you can drop it off the back of a hopper or bigger dry fly to fish pocket water. Let us know how it goes. Enjoy!
P.S.-Turn down your volume a bit before playing!
