Looped Baetis Nymph

tied by dwiltshire
Fly Type: Weighted,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: TMC 102Y #15 - 21
Thread: Powersilk 10/0
Bead: 2mm tungsten
Tail & 'wing': Woodduck
Body: Dark olive spectrablend
Thorax: Peacock / charcoal spectrablend
Tying Instructions: From the bead, wind the thread down to the bend of the hook. Tie in and splay the wooduck fibres and then trap down to behind the bead. Leave the buts long and over the bead.

Now dub the thread and wind towards the bend of the hook, building the profile as you go. When complete, spin the bobbin clockwise to cord the thread and wind in open wraps to form the rib.

Now loop the 'wing' and tie down. Remove the butts. Dub and wind in the thorax and whip-finish behind the bead.
Presentation Tips: Who know what the loop helps to represent - maybe opening wings... or possible legs. Either way, fished dead-drift or lifted for an induced take... hang on!
