BWO (Blue Winged Olive) - Stacked Hackle

Again a may fly, this BWO (Blue Winged Olive) is tied with a stacked hackle. This is definitely one of my summer favorites. Tied on a #14 hook here for illustration purposes, I mostly use #18's and #20's which I tie exactly the same was as pictured here.

Tie on & secure olive thread.

Tail length of hook curve. Grizzly Hackle.

Olive dubbing 2/3 way forward.

Tie in bright colored foam wing.

Wrap hackle as parachute.

Now flip wing and hackle forward. Secure wing vertically.

Add more dubbing as desired.

Clip wings shorter. Whip finish head. Add cement if desired.

Finished fly. Add floatant. Floats and works GREAT!
