Callidrangus Callibaetis

It's for your health!

Big B is back with a pattern that he's well with over the past couple of years. We frequent a lot of water that is rich in Callibaetis mayflies and having effective and quickly tied imitations is an important factor. Plus a lot of the time we're throwing midge tip lines, which allows us to fish either weighted or unweighted patterns like this deep or shallow, depending on fly weight and leader setup.

Plus, this bug uses some of Lance's UV Shrimp Pink mojo, which is a known fish catnip.
