Right Pheasanttail



....tails are a bit long and the abdomen a bit too skinny. But it's not a bad baetis nymph as it is.

Sure, it's just another way to tie a nymph. That ones a good generic baetis color. If it's small enough it will work. Mounting the leg fuzz underneath the thorax with two criss-cross wraps from the eye to underneath and then up and over right behind the thorax and then back again is quick and easy.

More important it's versatile. You can use almost anything from fuzz to fibers to midge flash or what ever. The criss cross (it's invisible with 14/0 thread of the right color) only loosely bastes the fuzz legs in place.

Add a micro dab of glue underneath the thorax to fix it permanently.
