Two Bit Hooker

Introduction: Two Bit Hooker

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

These are quite popular mayfly (baetis) patterns because they sink quickly due to the two beads. Where I was fishing on the Animas, the water was very murky, and I had to get deep to reach them. The trout were looking for mayfly nymphs, and this worked great. Also the flashabou back really adds to the flash and noticeability of this fly.
