Bucktooth Callibaetis Nymph

Bucktooth Callibaetis Nymph

Lightweight and Soft I look at my stillwater boxes and besides my Chironomid box, the Callibaetis collection usually gets the most pattern swapping from season to season. Like any pattern you fish with, you end up tweaking it over time. I've been working more and more with similar pattern versions just mixing up colors and, most importantly, weight.  The Bucktooth Callibaetis is a simple nymph or emerger pattern that has no added weight. It's a good dropper on a weightless rig or a rig with a weighted anchor fly. I've also used it dropped from a dry fly.

Tubing Midge

The Easiest Fly in the World When it comes to fly tying, it's always a bonus to have a few flies in your arsenal that are both super effective, and easy to tie.  The tubing midge is probably the easiest fly in the world to tie, and it looks a bit more realistic than a good old Zebra Midge.  For me, the best part of this fly is that there are tons of different colors so you can get a really good match for your local bugs.  Another cool technique that isn't shown on this video is that you can use different colors of thread and see through colors of tubing to give it a cool effect.   Check out the colors of Micro Tubing  here.  You can also use this tubing technique to make several other types of flies like caddis pupae, mayfly nymphs, and chironomids. ~ Cheech Material Lists Buckskin Add to Cart   View in store Hook : Daiichi 1120 - Heavy Wire Scud Hook - 20       Thread : UTC Ultrathread 70 Denier - Cream       Bead : Plummeting Tungsten Beads - Gold
