Back to posting, IT HAS BEEN A LOOOONG BUSY SUMMER!!!

Didn't get in nearly as much fishing as I should have. Been to busy with home maintenance projects.
Here we go with an effective baetis/mayfly nymph pattern that is tied a tad differently. 



BT (Bead Thorax) Baetis Pheasant Tail Nymph
Materials;
Hook: TMC 3761, TMC 3769
Size: 14~18
Thread: Olive Dun 6/0 UNI Thread
Tail, Abdomen, Shellback & Legs: Pheasant Tail Feather Barbules
(The barbules used on this pattern have no brown tips and are a natural olive and speckled) See Note
Rib: Brown Copper, Small/Brassie Sized UTC Ultra Wire
Thorax: Brown Olive Cyclops Bead
Head: Tying Thread
Optional: Water Based Head Cement
 Note: DO NOT use Ringneck Pheasant Center Tail Feathers. This pattern uses the “Natural Olive” (No Brown Tips) barbules from the secondary tail feathers for the abdomen, shellback and legs.
