Fly Tying: Higa’s SOS Pattern

Here is a perfect beginner’s fly pattern that I found over at Outsmarting Fish. The SOS Pattern by Spencer Higa is deceptively simple to tie, but has all the nymph/pupa components that are helpful with other such patterns. And, it will catch fish!

Fly Tying: SOS Baetis Nymph by Spencer Higa

Spencer Higa’s SOS Baetis Nymph: This simple nymph pattern, reputed to be a Mayfly nymph, is a nice beginner’s tie that is also likely productive. Click on green to see tutorial of simple, beginner’s tie.

Spencer Higa's SOS Nymph. Note here that there is a bit of a wing of Krystal Flash (like one-two small pieces) and a more spikey thorax (guard hairs from dubbing create 'spikey' or leggy appearance).

Fly Fishing: Baetis Puzzle @ Planet Trout

Planet Trout really analyzes the necessary components of a fly pattern to best match nature. Impressionistic is fine, but the pattern has to have certain indicators that match the real insects.

PT has reminded me before about the dark wingcase on Baetis patterns…an obvious reality marker for the trout. Check out his Split/Wingcase Baetis.

Always excellent  insights and valuable suggestions!
