Post A DOZEN Fall Baetis/BWO's...

For the Eastern Sierras...and, a few "other" places...

Da' BOX...

RS-2 TUBE BROWN BAETIS, #20-#22…Rim Chung/Shane Stalcup/ PT…side view…

HOOK: TMC 200R, #20-#22

THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Black

TAIL: Two Moose Body fibers (or black barbetts)

ABDOMEN: Micro Tubing, Brown

WING: Premium CDC, Medium Dun, (TroutHunter)

THORAX: Hare-Tron Dubbin, Dark Brown

GLASS BEAD: Diamond, Killer Caddis, 15/0, Midge

The RS-2, developed and designed by Rim Chung, is one of those must patterns for any fly box. It is like a Pheasant Tail or WD-40 when one needs useful Baetis/BWO patterns for Spring, Fall or anytime – anywhere…it JUST WORKS. This is a bit of a take off, with a micro tube abdomen and Glass Bead. The late Shane Stalcup has this pattern in his book, “Mayflies – Top to Bottom”. He uses partridge for legs…I started using this pattern long ago and used them exclusively (with glass beads),for two weeks, on the Madison River, at $3.00 Bridge – to test their effectiveness. They are machines…this variation may be tied in many colors using various shades of micro tubing, differing thread colors beneath the abdomen and fine dubbings…

PIB BAETIS…(“Paint It Black” – Baetis). #18…

HOOK: TMC 5262, #18

THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Black

TAIL: Coq De Leon, Speckled Black

RIB: Lagartun Fine Wire, Violet

FLASH BACK: Mirage Opal Tinsel, SM

ABDOMEN: Micro Tubing, Black

WING CASE: Stalcup’s Flash Back, Black

THORAX: Ice Dub, UV Black

WING STUBS: Marc Petitjean Select CDC Feather Fibers, Lt. Mallow

BEAD: Black Tungsten

Late Fall and Winter Baetis/BWO’s come in darker shades, especially when they are about to “POP”…I have tied several variations on this theme for use in these conditions…

Click the image to open in full size.

IRON LOTUS BWO/BAETIS…Egan…(Variant)…tilted view

HOOK: TMC 2488, #16-#20 or TMC 2487, Daiichi 1130

THREAD: Wapsi 70 Denier, Brown/Olive for abdomen

RIB: White, Uni, 6/0, twisted…cover abdomen with a coat of SHAN or Loon UV Knot Sense

WING CASE: Scud Back 1/8″ or strip of Black Thin Skin

HOT SPOT: Gordon Griffith 14/0, Red thread (Datum Glo-Brite works too!!!)

BEAD: Gold Tungsten, sized to hook

What else needs to be said…It is a Lance Egan pattern…

Click the image to open in full size.

B’s “BLACK MAMBA” Winter BAETIS…#20…

HOOK: TMC 100SPBL, #20

THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Black

TAIL: Soft Hen Hackle Saddle, Black

RIB: Midge Rainbow Flash (Cascade Crest)…coat abdomen with SHAN

THORAX: Purple UV Ice Dub

LEGS: Midge Flash, Black

BEAD: Silver Brass or Tungsten, 5/64″

The anti-“Silver Streak” and because, down deep, on the East Walker River this pattern will slay ‘em…“B” would be me…

Click the image to open in full size.

6X EMERGER (Baetis) – Variant…Clayton Molinero…

HOOK: TMC 3761, #18 or TMC 2487, Daiichii 1130, #18

THREAD: Tiemco 16/0 Black or Brown

RIB: X-SM gold or copper wire

ABDOMEN: Pheasant Tail Fibers

WING: White Zelon

THORAX: Peacock Herl..or, in this instance - Dyed Purple, Iridescent Peacock Herl… (Hence variant)

An older pattern that has caught more that its’ fair share of Trout in the Yellowstone area…revived by Craig Matthews and BRF

KG’s Halfback/Foamback BAETIS – (Variant)…Tilted view…

HOOK: Daiichi 1130, #18-#22

THREAD: Body – Wapsi Ultra 70 Denier, Brown

THREAD: Thorax forward – Tiemco 16/0 Brown

TAIL / SHUCK: Amber Sparkle Emerger Yarn

RIB: Wapsi wire, x-SM, Chartreuse

ABDOMEN: Tying thread

THORAX: UV Ice Dub, Brown

WING CASE: Electronics packing foam

LEGS: Midge Flash, Black

KG would be Kelly Glissmeyer. This is a good one that I have, as usual, tweaked a bit…the addition of the MF legs and sparkle emerger yarn shuck…(Kelly uses Zelon). A little dumpster diving will provide a wealth of that electronics packing foam, which has numerous applications…This fly works most excellent as a trailer, just below the surface film…
