Blue Wing Olive Parachute

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


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.

    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!

    I've long fished the BWO as a staple in my fly box. It's a tried and true pattern that delivers. This parachute version is no different with the added benefit of easier visibility on the water. A must have fly!

    Nice Tie - 6/27/2011
    By: from Vermont

    The 14, 16, and 18 Parachute BWO flies are nicely tied, float well, and stand up to hungry fish. I caught some nice 12 - 14 inch rainbows on the #16 on the upper Connecticut River.

    If you don't have a few of these in your fly box, then you must not like to catch fish. You can use them anywhere in the world successfully. The parachute design is great for getting the fly to float well versus the traditional tie.
