How To Tie The Darth Baetis Variation: Fly Tying Video

Another great fly from Umpqua Feather Merchants signature tier Greg Garcia. Today we tie a variation of the Darth Baetis. Click here to see the original version of the Darth Baetis.

I love this fly! Using a UV finish to help create a translucent abdomen for an excellent looking fly. Possibly most popularly tied in the brown variation this fly works great in olive, grey and the black variation shown here. This is a great fly to fish year round and will consistently turn fish. Get it down and get hooked up!
