I have been tying my baetis pattern's on 26-22 size hooks. Instead of a dubbed body I have been using UTC thread in olive 140, with a utc 70 brown ribbing and medallion sheeting winds which serves as a post for medium to dark dun hackle. I also make sure I fork that tail because I am catching a greater percentage of fish ( 3 to 1 ) on the forked tails. I am having a blast on this pattern variation especially now when the baetis hatches are hot. A little gherkes floats them all day. midgeaholic

Hi Midgeaholic,
I am not familiar with the material you call "medallion sheeting".
Could you clarify, and how do you tie it in to serve as a post?
Thanks, Ken.

Hi Ken, medallion sheeting is used for wing material by Shane Stalcup in his patterns. It's like a colored cellophane. It comes in various colors. Cut into very thin strips then tie it as you would any other wing material. use the wings as a post by wrapping the 10/0 thread (olive) around the base of the wing material. The 10/0 thread I use to tie the fly(less bulk)UTC is common at fly shops in many colors sixes 70 (thin) to 240 (thick). UTC is For the body. midgeaholic

Thanks Midgeaholic.
Sorry more questions:
I am assuming that it is tied parachute style?
Are you successful with this pattern all over the river or at particular places? (I am fortunate to be able to go back in late November for three more days.)
Ken.

Hi Ken, Yes you will find that the most successful baetis patterns are parachutes in my experience. If I can post a pics I will. Also, medallion is fairly common in most fly shops if not, look it up on the inter-net. Get a dun color blueish gray if possible. Midgeaholic

I have both a Renzetti and a Danvise, and like them equally, but the Danvise is about a $100 cheaper.
