BWO (Blue Winged Olive) - Parachute Hackle

Another mayfly the BWO (Blue Winged Olive) tied with a parachute hackle. This particular fly is tied on a #16 short dry hook. But you may want to tie on a #18 or smaller for those selective occasions. The other thought is a stacked hackle with bright foam wings for I personally believe these may float better.
Olive green thread. Secure @ bend.

Grizzly hackle for tail (length of bend). I use double hackle
for bouyancy. Carry 2/3 way through body and secure.

Now dub fly with olive color as shown.

Tie in foam wings as shown.

Wrap hackle several times and secure. Add more olive
dubbing if desired. Trim wings to desired length.
STOP HERE for parachute or ----->
Foam wings trimmed w/ stacked hackle here.
Hard takes, tight lines, bent rods on your BWO's.
