Top notch mayfly nymph. -
By: BJohnson from Eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming
As a guide this is my go to mayfly nymph. The glass bead adds an iridescence that the fish just love. Whether dead drifted or as it swings back to the surface, fish love this fly. Many times this is the only fly I can get fish to consistently eat. This football of a 'bow loved it!

Crushes Trophy 'Bows -
By: DWreck from Victor, Idaho
I fish this BWO pattern on the Freemont Canyon section of the North Platte in Wyoming. It is a must have. It simply out-fishes any other pattern. The runs are short and deep and the glass bead picks up some light when you fish it deep and heavy. 20"+ fat bucks live in those holes and they don't refuse this fly. At the end of your drift progressively lift the leader and as this fly swings to the surface towards the tail of runs, these fish visibly lift and pursue this emerger.
They eat it. -
The baetis version size 20 has proven to be one of the only beaded flies that the rainbows of the N. platte will eat consistently. When blue-wings are present this pattern usually outfishes any other baetis imitation. A very good pattern with an understated amount of flash and a well placed wing of our beloved cdc.
great fly for emerging PMD's -
Andy at the Jackson Orvis store suggested this fly to me. I would recommend that if your fishing emerging PMD's that you have this fly on your line.
