Baetis, Blue Winged Olives, the little green ones with greyish wings.
This swap is to take advantage of the fact that they can be found on most trout streams, and you should have more in your box.
 
They come in a wide range of sizes but lets keep it between 12 and 20.
Unless you have a uniquely specific and productive nymph, please tie a dry or emerger of any style.
 
Standard swap rules apply, international swappers invited too.  New swappers encouraged to join regardless of skill level.
Looking for 12 to join plus myself.  No need to declare a specific pattern.
I will PM my address when we fill
 
 
Due Date FEBRUARY 16th
*Mailed back to swappers 2/11*

 
SWAP IS FULL
