    Default Baetis Nymph

    I present you a nymph which is very easy to tie, resembles the realistic one and is very catchable.
    Have fun

    Lucian,

    Very nice step by step. You may want to add the dressing to make it easier to understand and copy.

    Regards,
    Hans

    Very nice looking fly and pics. I like the way the feather is used to create the thorax cover.

    I realize that I forgot something. .The best hook is 2xlong and the tail should be made of rabbit hair(back zone). The body can be made of peacock quill or biot(of different colors).The torax can be made of some lead turns and afterwards add rabbit-hair dubbing. The dubbing should have lots of guard hair to resemble the bug legs as much as possible. The best feather for the back of the insect is from the chest of the pheasant male. You can see it in the picture:is the red one with the black tips barbs. You add on it flexament and afterwards you pass it through the tips of your fingers to make it as long
    as possible. Then you put it to dry.The external face of the feather is darker than the inner one.The light one is for female and the dark one is for male.I hope now is clear

    Hi Lucian,

    thank you for brining this pattern to the forum,I would think alot of guys would like to have a go at tying this Pattern.

    Nice looking fly and not to difficult to tie based on the step by step photos.
