This video features an extended body technique I came up with several years ago. It has worked quite well to imitate Baetis mayflies and PMDs. Change the color of the tubing for the species of mayfly you are imitating. It can also be used for a caddis or stonefly body.

This has been a very successful pattern for imitating emerging late summer yellow mayflies, especially pale evening duns. It has fooled many selective fish on our tailwater. The body and thorax are made of CDC. This pattern can be tied in various color schemes to imitate different mayfly species. It can also be tied on a curved emerger style hook.
