Trout Fly of the Month – November

Blue Winged Olive

Josh Barnett | November 1, 2006

BWOs are generally small mayflies that come off sporadically throughout the day and are a fun dry fly to fish during the cooler parts of the year. Characterized by their olive body and bluish wings, they are loved by trout. They’re effective when a hatch is occurring, but remember to use subsurface flies if no hatch is present. As with all dry fly fishing, a drag-free drift is essential.
Good luck and tight lines! -JB
