PMD UV Super Baetis

The UV Super Baetis is one of RK's Fly Design most effective fly patterns. Super Hair is used to create a segmented body and provides excellent UV light qualities. UV Clear Fly Finish provides a durable and wet tapered look. Allen Fly Fishing N304 (2X Short, Reversed Bend, Emerger) hook is used. This particular hook is one of the best that Allen produces. It is sharp, strong and perfectly shaped. Check them out

The PMD version of the UV Super Baetis is fished during Pale Morning Dun and Light Cahill hatches. It can be fished either as the lead or end fly in a tandem rigging system with a strike indicator. I generally fish it as the lead fly with an emerger pattern trailing it. The tungsten bead allows the fly to sink fast for an optimal drift. At the end of the drift, I'll lift up my rod tip so the flies rise up through the water column, imitating an emerging fly.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
