The Almost There Baetis comes from our own Bucky McCormick. Bucky first showed us this fly a few seasons back, raving about how effective it was on local rivers like the Firehole and Madison. When we finally tried it ourselves, we couldn't argue with him; it is, hands down, one of the best Baetis emergers that we've ever fished. We use the olive version both spring and fall on all of our local waters, and we love the cream version for fishing lighter-colored Baetis on Slough Creek in the fall, as well as for matching tiny PMDs on the Livingston spring creeks and Henry's Fork.
