Default Re: BWOs

BWO is probably the predominate hatch on our streams in SW VA (next to caddis i suppose). It seems that natural PT and olive PT work nicely, ive also used Olive HE and seemed like that was just as good. However, I prefer the PT b/c of the slender body and small profile I think it immitates the BWO nice. Unweighted PT brushed w/ Froggs Fanny and swung does well before a hatch. For Dries, the parachute is deffinately easier to see, and it seems like split tails do a little better especially early or late in the season. I use BWO superfine and reg. dun hackle. Para. post i use White Poly Yarn, orange is ALOT easier to see though (especially in like 18 range). Good fishin!
