Tying the Skinny Nelson

Tying the Skinny Nelson

The Skinny Nelson is a Baetis nymph pattern developed for the Bighorn River in Montana by Tracy Peterson. It is a simple but deadly fly. It works great in any stream or river with small mayfly nymphs. It can be tied with or without a tungsten bead. Typically it is tied in sizes 18-20, but tying them in slightly larger or smaller sizes works too.
