The Story

Many mayflies struggle to release themselves from their casing and as such are not able to dry their wings and get off the water. Often trout will key in on these dry flies, as they are easy pickings compared to those preparing to fly off. If you're not having much success with your old patterns, try a cripple dry fly. Color, Blue Wing Olive.

Sizes: 16, 18, 20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue wing olives You can always use something a little different to try when the olives are hatching

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They do work .....BWO hatch early in April - late afternoon on the South Platte. Despite considerable surface feeding going on, they would not take a conventional dry BWO. Put a cripple on and had a 14" brown on the third cast.
