It’s Happening Now (Baetis)

This past Wednesday March 25th I happened to be in the right place at the right time for the MOST INCREDIBLE Baetis (BWO) hatch that I personally have ever encountered. Myself and two fishing buddies had fantastic fishing on dry flies and emergers for just over two hours. We had so much fun that we quit before the hatch was over and decided to celebrate with some Rolling Rock. To the left is one of the patterns we had extremely good luck with.

We were fishing the Roaring Fork River close to Carbondale.

Give this pattern a try. For recipe and/or tying unstructions got to LoJ’s Fly Tying & Bug Stuff blog at
