The Chart Baetis
A great baetis pattern to fish deep or in discolored or high/off colored water. A tungsten bead helps get rig down quick in turbulent water. I will also tie with couple other color matte beads. I like the fluorescent orange and the caddis green bead. Also try tying this fly from 16-22 hook sizes. An easy tie and very effective. Designed by Max Pavel.
