Fly Tying with Hans- Ultra Violet Baetis Nymph

An epoxy back mayfly nymph imitation. The flashback on this nymph is made from Hareline Dubbin's Purple Haze Holographic Fibers. An excellent nymph to imitate Baetis mayflies. Tie in sizes 16-20. I used Clear Cure Goo for the epoxy back. After experimenting with CCG I discovered that the extra fine accessory tips are a must for applying the small amounts needed for epoxy backs on small nymphs.

Happy Tying
