Hi guys. 

 Here are my favorite  baetis nymphs tied with tungsten beads. I like them because are very east to tie,  effective,  easy to find material and super fast to make them ( if your materials are ready prepared each fly will take 3min  maximum )

 Lot of tiers, these days tie complicate  flies,  I do not know, probably too much time to spend :) Simple flies  and effective too are too often forgotten. Anyway here are  my  baetis, I prefer to tie in size #14,16 and 18. Each  color and size  has a row with 20positions in  my fly box. I really love them  because they catch fish all the time, from late Spring till late Autumn.

Nice. Are all of your nymphs bead heads?

Okay, my bodies are smooth and tapered until you magnify them and look closely. How are you tying them so smooth and precisely tapered? Are you tying under a magnifier? Are you tying them super slowly and meticously? They are really really nice ties.

My eyes are still ok no need to use magnifier. But I think  that I will start using glasses from this Spring ( difficult to make cdc duns on size #18-22 ).   

To obtain fine and tapered bodies I tie a lot  the same fly until the result is good and the flies look the same. probably the most important thing is the thread, I use very thin thread: 70den flat is the best for me.

I spend around 3-6 min on a fly. For example, on the gammarus I spend around 6-8min because I have to catch in a dubbing loop the dubbing and CDC fibers. I prepare the CDC and dubbing for that body each time  and is time consuming 

For a baetis nymph I spend 3 min for tying. I usually tie 10,  one after one and I prepare the materials before  starting tying process.
