The Blue Wing Olive fly is what you need if you want to catch trout and salmon all year!
One of the most prevalent bugs on the water come early spring, late fall, and even into the winter. Floating down the river like little sailboats, BWO’s are an easy meal late in the season for trout and salmon. This BWO is one of the first flies I reach for if there is any insect activity during the late fall (late September-November). Dead drift and fish in sizes 16-20 for the best results!
Check out the MFG fly bench video to see how the blue wing olive dry fly is tied. Follow along to tie your own if you can. Then please share any of your results with us, we’d love to see your fly tying skills at work!
