At Performance Flies, you will find materials and patterns from the competitive fly fishing scene. Also, Kevin has Jack Mickievicz's original materials such as Honeybug Cotton Chenille, Jack's original dubbing blends and DuPont Antron yarn.
The Cinnamon Toast Baetis nymph is a BWO (Blue-Winged Olives) nymph. BWO’s are staples in most if not all rivers. These nymphs are an important food source for trout because of their high number, and multi-broods. The fact that many BWO’s are multi-brood means they are available to trout year round. Baetis are streamlined swimmers, and the nymph pattern should be slender.
Here Kevin ties his Cinnamon Toast Baetis Nymph, which is a deadly BWO nymph.
