I've been tying the Galloup Baetis this past week. He seems convinced the pearl ice dub "gills" are the trigger on this fly that doubles the catch rate. Can't wait to try it. Anyone here have any experience with it? Also been tying some wolly sculpins but I'm 0fer with this pattern.

I liked Kelly's theory re the "gills" on this nymph and tied a bunch in January. I was on the streams for a couple days during that warming in early Feb and tried it on a double nymph rig. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any interest at all on nymphs of any sort. So, I'll call my results inconclusive. Larger Pine Squirrel steamers, however, got hammered by some big browns (and even a huge, healthy holdover rainbow). In any case, all tyers should check out Kelly's terrific tying videos.
