Fly tying the Baetis/Midge nymph
This fly pattern is a multi-purpose fly if you will. I use it when I see Blue Winged Olive's, Trico's, and other small mayflies hatching. Also, due to its slender body, it works well for a midge. When tying the midge I'll keep it on the small side. This fly has been a great Baetis-Midge pattern for me for a long time. Enjoy!
