Friday Fly Day - Smethurt's Baetis Bomb

As the season winds down there's a good chance the fish are well and truly over it after seeing fisherman most days in the higher pressure catchments so this is where the less is more tactics will come into play with small flies, light tippets and first shot presentations.

The Smethurst Baetis Bomb is a great tool to have in your flybox as it has a sparse profile body and the heavy for size beadhead gets this inobstrusive fly into the zone quickly. Available in sizes #14, #16 & #18 it's a killer pattern for sneaking in front of a fish Mission Impossible style and the fish won't realise the mistake it's made until its too late.
