Greedo BWO


Greedo BWO
Hook:#18-22 nymph
Thread: Olive 6/0 UNI
Bead: 5/32 gold brass
Tail: Brown duck flank fibers, hen hackle fibers, pheasant tail fibers, or whatever else you have laying around
Abdomen: Olive Micro Tubing
Thorax: Olive hare’s ear dubbing
Wing bud: Brown goose biot

I tied this one up to imitate the plentiful small BWO nymphs I have been seeing in my home waters. I think the micro tubing does a nice job of getting a segmented body, and I really like the buggy look the clipped biot wing bud gives the pattern. This little fly is a great pattern for nymphing in the colder months when the Blue Winged Olives are active.
