Another pattern created by Ascent Bug Geek Peter Stitcher, the Disco Baetis has fast become one of our go-to fly patterns for tempting a bite out of reluctant trout! A sexy mashup of the Disco Midge and Juju Baetis, the Disco Baetis is an attention hog and true attractor pattern. Tied with a thin dark tail and legs, a flashy mylar abdomen and flashback, dark peacock thorax, and thin skin of UV resin across the back. After you start fishing this pattern and landing fish left and right, your copper johns and rainbow warriors will start to feel unappreciated as they are left in your fly box!

Anxious to fish. This is a great looking pattern in the subsurface general mayfly department. I found a couple with excess glue on the body, but it easily snapped off.
