CDC Puff Baetis Emerger

Did I mention I love CDC? Here is another CDC pattern, this one a blue winged olive or Baetis emerger tied up by John Collins for riseformstudio.tv. The pattern is intended to be fished deeper in the water because the BWO’s hatch on the substrate of the waters and emerge to the surface as adults. You can also fish the fly in the film if you wish, and if that is your intention, I would recommend to skip the wire rib to keep the pattern lighter.
