The Juju Baetis fly pattern is a popular fly pattern used in fly fishing to imitate small mayflies or midges. It was created by Charlie Craven, a renowned fly tier and owner of Charlie’s Fly Box in Colorado.
The Juju Baetis features a slender body made of tinsel or wire, and a wing case made of thin, iridescent material. The fly is typically tied in sizes 14-24 to mimic the size of the natural insects it imitates.
The Juju Baetis is a versatile pattern that can be used in a variety of fishing situations, including tailwaters, freestone streams, and still-waters. It is especially effective in clear water and can be fished as part of a nymphing rig or on its own as a dropper fly. The fly is often fished using a dead-drift presentation, but it can also be twitched or stripped to imitate the movement of an emerging insect.
Overall, the Juju Baetis is a must-have fly pattern for any fly angler who fishes for trout in rivers and streams. Its realistic profile and effective presentation make it a go-to fly when targeting selective trout that are feeding on small aquatic insects.
