Craven’s Two Bit Hooker

$3.00

Charlie Craven changes the game with another killer pattern, the Two Bit Hooker.  The goal of this pattern is to get the fly down into the zone as quick as possible.  It does just that with two smaller tungsten beads back to back instead of one that messes up the proprotions of the fly.  Limiting the bulk with two smaller tungsten beads, enables this mayfly imitation to have a realistic, slendor and flashy profile.  The Two Bit Hooker is one of those flies that everyone must have in their arsenal, especially if you fish alot of Baetis imitations.

Charlie Craven changes the game with another killer pattern, the Two Bit Hooker.  The goal of this pattern is to get the fly down into the zone as quick as possible.  It does just that with two smaller tungsten beads back to back instead of one that messes up the proprotions of the fly.  Limiting the bulk with two smaller tungsten beads, enables this mayfly imitation to have a realistic, slendor and flashy profile.  The Two Bit Hooker is one of those flies that everyone must have in their arsenal, especially if you fish alot of Baetis imitations.

Fishing Strategy:

The Two Bit Hooker is an exceptional Baetis imitation and is a great option as an attractor or used as a dropper in a tandem nymphing rig.  This Baetis imitation fishes well under a wide range of condtions but remains most effective during a (BWO) hatch.  Dusk and dawn are two perfect times to tie on Jujubaetis. The light is low and typically you will find the nymphs moving around the bottom to feed or relocate.  The best time to fish this pattern is in the Spring and Fall when trout are keying in on Baetis nymphs.
