Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.
For years after I started this website, I was eagerly hoping to find a green drake to add to the collection, but I was never in the right part of the world at the right time. It finally happened on June 1st, 2007.
I can't seem to be able to find my Green Drake/Brown Drake fly box....might of left it someplace or maybe it is up in my cabin but in case it is lost (over 100 emergers, duns, and spinmners) I was wondering what you PA/NY fishers use for the body? Specifically what color? do any of you color the dorsal side with brown indelible ink? I do and rib the abdomen with brown cotton thread. Thanks. A picture would be helpful.
