Baetis, more commonly known as blue winged olives have finally started to show. This is the hatch that Grey Reef is famous for. Our fish go crazy for them and put themselves into precarious positions to get them. Soon we will be able to fish really short and light with small baetis imitations from morning to evening. Can't wait! Baetis should be around until early to mid June this year. This is later than normal but will be well worth the wait. Pic of the week (above) is a lovely example and only one of two specimens we saw that day.
