Re: Blue Winged Olive

I am adding UV resin to the abdomen to some of my Soft Hackles and nymphs.

This size 18 BWO has a tail of CDL and I am using a Whiting 4B hen in Dun for the hackle.

A PMD isn't a Baetis. It's an Ephemeralla.

"Some even knew a PMD was a baetis." I stand corrected on the PMD.

Re: Blue Winged Olive

I have talked to people from all over the country Bob. You seem to be the only person I know of that has an issue with what a BWO is. Or an issue with what other folk call a BWO. I did not dig too deep in to YouTube, but every video I saw knew a BWO was a baetis. Some even knew a PMD was a baetis.

Re: Blue Winged Olive

I am at a loss for words. Latin or English.

BWO for me and anyone I have talked to for 40 years has been synonymous with Baetis or Baetidae.
A few responses to this thread threw me for a loop.

Woodcock is on my to get list. Well done.

I just noticed you are from Boulder Mt. My wife has a lot of family that lives there. I miss vacationing there and fishing the Boulder River, Basin Creek and the many small creeks in the area.

Trifly- what size are your flies? They look like 18 or maybe even smaller. Very impressive.
Size 24. Dai-riki 310 hook. Not too bright here. Tried to edit the post and messed it up. I too like the spiders JCwillow posted. Well done.
