Default Walter Babbs' BWO

I see Walter often on my way to work. Since I haven't the "Vise" yet, I asked if he would participate on the thread. Walter will be the last person to own a computer or cell phone so I asked if he would allow me to assist. He was excited and I will do my best to photograph and post.

BWO Emerger

Hook: #18 Mustad 94840
Thread: 8/0 Olive UNI-Thread
Shuck: CDC oiler puff
Body: Superfine Olive dubbing
Wing: CDC oiler puff



I normally tie this pattern with a much shorter wing (about half of what I did for this one) so it looks like the wing is just starting to emerge but this one kind of got away from me. This pattern is my favorite for tough fish in smooth water...

I pulled an old ragged one out of my box and photographed it. Nothing special, just an old school BWO Catskill tie. Some nice looking flies this week. I catch most of my flies during this hatch on PT nymphs and wet flies any way.



Hook: TMC 100 sz 16-18 ( if I tie smaller than an 18 I use a 101 with a straight eye)
Thread: Uni 8/0
Tail: Cog De Leon
Wing: Dun hen hackle tips
Body: Superfine BWO
Hackle: White dyed Olive
