Blue Winged Olive Dry Fly

This Blue Winged Olive pattern is an excellent and essential early season pattern, but can be productive through midsummer on many eastern rivers. This Blue winged Olive pattern imitates many different mayfly genus including Baetidea, Drunella, Drunella Cornuta and Drunella Lata. Invariably the hatch it imitates occurs from late morning, through mid-afternoon.

This Blue Winged Olive pattern imitates smaller mayflies which find it more difficult to break the surface tension when emerging. As a consequence of this they will often find calmer, slower water to affect their hatch, which typically occur on cooler, wetter days invariably after a sustained rain shower. As a consequence water temperatures in the mid 40’s are something to look for.

When fishing any dry fly pattern, matching the color and the size to the hatch are critical, with presentation being the finishing touch to this trinity. Often overlooked is the casting of shadow from your leader, which may lead to spooked fish.   We suggest selecting a high float leader. Additional waterproofing can be given to your fly delaying it becoming waterlogged, by applying a flotant product such as Gink ®.

All flies are tied with American sourced materials including Hareline Dubbin Materials and Whiting Farm's Hackles & Capes and are tied on premium hooks.
