These are quite popular mayfly (baetis) patterns because they sink quickly due to the two beads. Where I was fishing on the Animas, the water was very murky, and I had to get deep to reach them. The trout were looking for mayfly nymphs, and this worked great. Also the flashabou back really adds to the flash and noticeability of this fly.



Hook: Umpqua U101 size 18
Tail: Michrofibbets
Weight: 2 quantity of 2mm sized brass beads
Thread: Ultra Thread 70 dark brown
Rib: Ultra Wire - small - dark olive
Thorax: super fine dubbing - brown
Legs: Partridge neck feather
Thorax casing: Flashabou
Adhesive: Solarez UV Curing Resin - Bone Dry formula

I like it. Just may tie a few tomorrow. Different seeing a nymph with microfibbets for a tail, but worth a shot.

Use something else for the tail if you want. I find this works just fine...
