Stalcup’s Baetis Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Stalcup’s Baetis is a great small mayfly nymph developed by Shane Stalcup.  The Stalcup’s Baetis combines lifelike profile and perfect buggy colors to make up one amazing fly.  The Stalcup’s Baetis is not too hard to tie.  A intermediate tier can tackle this pattern and master it with relative ease.  Keep this fly sparse.  Do not add to much material or bulk.  The fly was designed to be slender, that is why it works so good!!!
