As of this typing, it's snowing very hard........doesn't surprise or worry us any more here in Paradise Valley.........
Spring is here because these guys are present! Make sure your flies do imitate vivid orange/red eyes!! (just kidding, don't take it seriously).
Around last weekend, I tied 319 flies!! - all for Spring Creek baetis. Now I start to fill my PMD boxes. That will be updated later.
Then I visited DePuy's Spring Creek (www.depuyspringcreek.com) 4 days in a row.
Anyway one out of over 300 baetis flies seemed to work.
This is "No-Hackle Gnat". It's super light and sits very low on the surface. It's also easy to sink and tilt but that's when selective feeders key on.......
Another one out of over 300 flies did a job!
Again, regardless of lengths, these guys are getting stronger and heavier for my 4wt!
Here are other patterns that I'm using and that have been taken well during BWO hatch!
Improved Pheasant Puff (PP2).
And my good old Pheasant Tail Mayfly Cripple - BWO. This one works at both flat and riffle waters.
And I have a very relevant post following right behind!
