Tying the Last Chance Cripple Baetis (Blue Winged Olive)



Rene Harrop's fly patterns were developed with an experienced eye for detail. Proven on the Henry's Fork, one of the most demanding trout fisheries in the country.

The Last Chance Cripple series are great patterns for selective fish. We use this Baetis version on our local tailwater with great success.

Tie in sizes 16-22 for a Baetis (aka Blue Winged Olive) Cripple.

The pattern is easily adapted to imitate other mayfly species.

Thanks for watching!
