Blue Winged Olives or BWOs are an important food source during fall to spring.  This makes them vitally important to make sure and carry in your fly box.  The one thing we struggle with with these small flies is their visibility.  Because of that we have incorporated a HiVis CDC wing to allow us to track this fly better.  It is a quick and simple pattern to tie, and effective.
