Poxyback Callibaetis Fly Tying DirectionsThe Poxyback Callibaetis is one of the best Western Stillwater Trout Flies.  The Poxyback Callibaetis imitates the free swimming Callibaetis Nymph.  The Poxyback Callibaetis is one of my personal favorite stillwater flies here in Colorado, especially for Spinney Reservoir!  Fish the Poxyback Callibaetis on a clear intermediate sinking line.  Retrieve with a slow to medium steady pace.  Callibaetis live in the weeds and muddy bottoms of lakes and reservoirs, usually in 3-15 feet of water.
