The Stalcup’s Baetis is a great small mayfly nymph developed by Shane Stalcup. It combines life like profile and perfect buggy colors to make up one amazing fly. The Stalcup’s Baetis isn’t too hard to tie. A intermediate tier can tackle this pattern and master it with relative ease. Keep this fly sparse and do not add to much material or bulk. The fly was designed to be slender, that is why it works so good!!!
Now let’s see what you can do. #avidmaxflytyers
