Silver Tung Baetis Nymph
Hook - Tiemco 2457 scud or other heavy wire scud #16
Thread - brown
Tail - rust antron
Abdomen - thread
Rib - silver wire
Thorax - muskrat dubbing

Alt Tying: Try black, olive, red bodies.
Comments : We fished as a suspender under large dry such as hopper,
cicada, etc, but try deep nymphing too in any water where baetis are present. Tungsten
helps get the fly down in faster water.
