Default BWO Nymph Patterns

What's your favorite BWO (Baetis) nymph patterns?

I saw a great pattern a guy was using on the Beaverhead the other day... now, of course I can't remember how it was made.. almost looked like a very small poxyback green/olive stone

ETA - sorry - I should have said.. nymph patterns

The Baetis are drawing lots of attention on the rivers in my area these past couple of weeks and I have been hauling the mail nymphing ahead of - and during - the hatch with the tandem of #16 simple BHPT (olive) followed by a #18 RS2 (olive). Put nearly four (4) dozen in the net over my last two (2) trips to the Provo River... most preferring the RS2.

Simple BHPT
Click the image to open in full size.

--Hook: #16 scud hook
--Bead: small, tungsten (copper colored)
--Thread: UTC 70 (light olive)
--Tail/Body: three (3) pheasant tail fibres
--Rib: fine gold wire
NOTE: Tied on a scud hook, the #16 fishes like a #18


RS2
Click the image to open in full size.

--Hook: #18 Nymph (2X heavy, 1X long)
--Thread: veevus 14/0 (brown)
--Tails: two (2) white Microfibbets, tied split
--Abdomen: one (1) strand of six (6) strand DMC floss (medium olive)
--Wing Tuft: small loop, folded Pearl Braid
--Thorax: dubbed Superfine (adams gray)
NOTE: This fly fished "OK" for me in it's traditional tie... switched to the Pearl Braid wing tuft (thank you for the 100th time Charlie Craven) and it really seemed to add a trigger effect and the catch rate went way up.


Depending on the depth of your stream/river you may need to add some weight to get 'em down... especially in fast water.

Those are all some nice, easy looking patterns! I also like Barr's Emerger for BWOs.

Great ties, Joe.

Are the olive PTs standard pheasant tail or dyed olive?

You said you are fishing them tandem so you are nymphing with the RS2 "emerger." Good thinking, I've caught some nice fish nymphing with spent spinner flies.
