Tying the Naches Bee (Video)

The Naches Bee


               I fondly refer to the Naches Bee as being the “Incidental hatch”.  It was tied out of curiosity after watching native Cutthroat feed on a swarm of bees along an Eastern Washington State stream. It works quite well and has since continued to work coast-to-coast.
