Tying the Upright Callibaetis Spinner

Upright Callibaetis Spinner Fly Tying Video

A great lake pattern to imitate the callibaetis mayfly. This pattern utilizes the new synthetic quill body from Hareline Dubbin. We typically tie and fish this fly in sizes 14-16. The fly in this video uses a down eye dry fly hook, but a straight eye hook is also a good choice. If you choose to use a straight eye hook, the Daiichi 1110 is a good choice, but a Tiemco 101 will also work. Finishing the fly with a light coating of Loon Thin UV Fly Finish or Clear Cure Goo Hydro will enhance the durability.
