Blue Wing Olive Parachute

Make sure these dry flies are always in your fly box.

Details

These trout dry flies are a parachute version of the familiar and common Baetis pattern. Parachute flies make for easy visibility, particularly if there is a fairly prolific hatch or in rougher water. These flies offer an excellent alternative to the common Blue Winged Olive pattern. Often trout will take one version of a dry fly when ignoring the other. Color, Blue Winged Olive.
Sizes: 14, 16, 18, 20

    Fast floating fly - 1/23/2015

    This version of an old standby sits a a little higher in the water and consequently provides a little more pace from wind on slower eddy presentations- excellent product

    Great for Late Season - 10/25/2014

    Wanted some late season BWO's for northern freestone streams. Stepped into a long slow moving stretch during mid-day hatch and these flies did the trick. Withstood two hours of heavy pounding by the cutthroats and were highly visible.

    Nothing like catching a nice trout on a dry. Not really visible on the water but I suppose thats just the way to goes.

    The trout seem to always nail this pattern on a dead drift. It is one of my favorite dries. Hatch or no hatch, it works!
