Silver Bullet Baetis

Lance - May, 2021

T

he Silver Bullet Baetis is a sleek, fast sinking pattern perfect for hanging below a bushy dry, or is also effective on an indicator or euro nymph rig. This simple fly is durable, has a great silhouette, and is relatively drab in color, other than the silver bead. This pattern was designed to complement the Iron Lotus, and Thread Frenchie, in that the Silver Bullet Baetis is truer to the drab coloration of aquatic insects. I use it most in situations where picky fish prefer a fly without a hotspot. The Silver Bullet Baetis is a proven fish catching pattern that will fill a niche in your fly box.
