I got some short strikes on an elk hair emerger before the spinnerfall, but it was the color of a sulphur. That was frustrating... I don't think any of us caught anything until the spinners hit. I should be a little bit more prepared this time around. I'll atleast be ready for the hi viz adams parachute hatch on those brookie streams

I use a brown olive dubbing (Superfine and ice dubbing) and thread for all of my baetis/BWO patterns from small nymphs to emergers to CDC duns. I have had great success with these patterns/color all throughout the year and throughout several Eastern states.

Nice link Tom I didn't know about that species of Olive, that nymph looks to me to be a clinger.... I thought all Olive's were swimming nymphs ?


"BWO" is really a generic term that usually refers to all olive colored mayflies. There the two main insects refered to as BWOs are the baetis and drunella. They are completely different speices. Go back to Meck's chart here and check out the listings for BWOs. You'll find Baetis and Drunella listed. I said Cornuta, but that's the old-fashioned name. It's now Drunella. Just as I learned the Latin names, the dang entomolgists changed them on me!!
