Pennington's Baetis - Purple

Montana Fly Company


Pennington's Baetis in Purple is a larger Baetis nymph with a slender body and flashy little legs.  Purple trout flies are effective and have become super popular.  Pennington's Purple Baetis is tied on a slightly longer shank hook so it is a bit longer than a typical size 18 but it has great fishy appeal and a very durable construction.  Pennington's Baetis is very good nymph for searching for active fish when Blue Wing Olives are on the menu or anytime as a general mayfly nymph pattern.  

Size 18 hook.
