Two Bit Hooker, Craven

Two Bit Hooker, Craven

There's no better mayfly nymph to get it down in the zone, fast!

 

This fly has two tungsten beads for signifcant weight. Just like Craven's Juju Baetis, this fly has a slim, epoxy body and shiny wing case. 

 

You can never go wrong with this as your lead fly.

 

Tying Tips: 

- Be sure to hard pack the dubbing between the two beads so the legs go backwards.

- Spin the thread using for ribbing to prevent it splaying.

- Build the dubbing ball behind the second bead to be the same size as the beads.

- Tie in one wing at a time.
