I know, I know, I already have about 4 or 5 patterns that I have called the "Slim Shady" at some point, but this one is the last one, I promise. This is it. This is the one. I finally settled on a pattern that I will now retire that name. The reason why I like that name so much is because it is catchy and the younger generation knows exactly what the reference is. But more than that, I love it because I strive to tie my baetis nymphs slim and skinny. That is what the fish like and that is what I like. So, from now on, this fly is called the Slim Shady. It's been killing it lately and I have enjoyed tying it and fishing it. After a few changes, I find that it is bomb-proof and durable. There were some challenges early on with durability, but they have been fixed. Stay tuned for a video and more info on these bugs. They are brand new, so I am still working on colors right now. Stay tuned!!
