BWO Emerger

Blue Winged Olives (BWO) are some of the first mayflies to begin hatching in early spring. Surface activity is typically minimal as far as feeding fish goes. You`ll see slight swirls or ever so gentle rises. The fish are likely feeding on the emergers, nymphal shuck dragging behind the emerging insect. Try out an emerger pattern when there is little to no surface activity. BWOs are one of the early hatches, and fish are seldom looking up for their meals at this time of year. Fish it just below or in the surface film. [singlepic id=51 w=625] Hook 18-22 dry fly Thread olive 8/0 Trailing Shuck webby section of turkey feather Body olive dry fly dub Wing Post white poly
