Quick BWO question

I have some dubbing recipes for various bugs. The problem is that they differentiate all of the BWOs by latin names.

Which species is/will soon be hatching on limestoners like spring creek?

I understand that the same color will probably cover all of them, but I am starting to enjoy this imitative tying stuff.

My comparaduns are fine. I tied a ton of GD, sulpur, and BWOs.

CDC comparaduns are harder to tie than traditionals, IMO. They are just quicker.

Hell, I even tied some catskills to make my box look legit. I doubt I'll ever use them though.

Jay,
According to the book Mayflies, Beatis is the Genus. Size 18 -- 22.

I have have had a ton of luck with a size 16 or 18 parachute on Spring this time of year and into the coming months.

My fly of choice would be and 18 parachute (dark dun tails, hackle and chute; light to medium olive body).

Keep in mind that one package of superfine dubbing may be a different color that another with the same label.

I am no expert on Baetis but this guy at FFP seems to have hit them on Spring Creek fairly often over the years. Under Tying articles, select:

The Icebreaker-The March Baetis Hatch

http://www.flyfishersparadise.com/art ... ing_Articles&archive=true

The article is missing a a picture or two (the parachute) from when the original came out on the old site and the pictures that are there are small. But I think the verbiage is all there as well as the recipes.

Jay-

Great minds think alike. I was just going to make a post on Baetis. My box of baetis gets me more fish per year I think than anything. I was going to make a tutorial on the fly I tie, and then I found this website. This is almost identical to what I tie.

He makes this baetis float low by lifting the tail, and clipping the bottom of the hackle. I tied up a bunch like that. I do use a wing, antron, single post. I read a thing on light refraction and what trout see, and if the author was correct they see the wing first.

Also, to fill you box of olives, I do not know of a better reference than these pics. I tie quite a few of these, not all, but quite a few.

Great link.

For what its worth, I bought a sampler of Delaware River Club's Caucci/Nastasi Spectrumized dubbing. It's made with primary colors + white. It all looks yellow to me, but when it gets wet, I'll be damned if it's not spot on. It came with a series of cards explaining which species and stage each color covers.

My favorite box of flies is my little box of olives. I don't leave home without it, regardless of where I am fishing...

For what it's worth I picked a BWO dun off the water last friday that had a slate grey wing and a pale yellow body with a hint of olive.

Today I picked one off with almost a black wing and traditional olive brown body.

I'm sure different trout key in on different features on any given day I would assume whatever is most available.
