Mercury Baetis Fly Tying Instructions

Mercury Baetis Fly Pat DorseyThe Mercury Baetis is a great technical Mayfly Nymph Pattern.  The Mercury Baetis was designed by Pat Dorsey to fool picky trout in Cheesman Canyon.  The Mercury Baetis was formulated to imitate the small “Baetis” or Blue Winged Olive Nymphs that hatch in early spring and late fall.  The Mercury Baetis can be tied in many variations and sizes, but Black and Olive are hands down the best color combination.
