Fripple 2.0 Baetis Mayfly Cripple

Curtis - March 26, 2013

The story of the Fripple goes back a number of years to a lazy day on the bank of the river watching the blue winged olives hatch. I noticed that the fish were not keying on the high-floating soon-to-fly-away able bodied adults, but rather on the bugs that we still struggling to leave the surface of the water.

This drove me to the vise and, after a few iterations over the following days, I decided on a spent-wing style imitation. The Fripple has provided me some great fishing over the years in all sizes and colors to cover anything from a drake to a PMD.

Fast forward a few years and Fripple 2.0 is the mayfly focus these days for me. Coupled with my Aero-baetis, I've got two new solid confidence flies for hitting any mayfly hatch.

Here's a fella that, along with a bunch of his friends this day, slammed the fly all afternoon...
