Default Re: Before and after Baetis

Jackster,

Thanks for the compliment.

The baetis adult spinner has always been a puzzle to me. I know the adult goes subsurface to lay eggs and from there I'd only be guessing about it's availability as food for trout. I can honestly say that I have never witnessed a baetis "spinner fall" so I have not felt it necessary to tie a spinner pattern for hatch matching here in the west.

Tricorythodes, on the other hand, is the exact opposite to me. I forget the nymphs and duns in the early morning hours and wait for the rings to start and fish the tiny white-winged black spinner.
