Hans’ Wire Bodied Baetis Nymph
This is a design I have been tinkering with for a while. I like the wire body for weight and segmentation, the wing buds, and the tail leg combo are coming together. Small baetis nymph are a staple of trout diets in our neck of the woods. We are always looking for something else to throw at them. Previous versions of this fly have done well for me and I am looking forward to catching fish on this one. Our baetis nymphs range in size from size 18 down to 22-24′s. These small sized nymphs don’t allow for overly complicated flies. This fly isn’t too difficult to tie and has a few features that are sure to get the fishes attention.
