CORRECTION: I WILL BE DOING THIS FOR THE MEETING ON FEBRUARY 17.

 

For the meeting on February 10 I will be tying a CDC BWO, and talking about CDC and Blue-winged Olive mayflies.

 

I first saw this pattern in Vic Bergman's video "Trout: tying and fishing effective trout flies." Subsequently I have seen it credited online to Jim McLennan.

 

CDC BWO

 

Hook: Dry fly hook size 18-22

Thread: 8/0 olive

Wings: two CDC feathers, divided

Tail: blue dun or light coloured hackle fibres

Body: dubbed olive CDC

 

This fly works well on slow flat currents where trout have some time to look at the fly before taking it. I will also show the patterns I use for riffled or rough water.

 

My apologies for the poor quality of the picture.
