Blue Wing Olives have some of the most prolific hatches during the colder months, making them a vital food source for fish in these times. We really love fishing and tying parachute dry fly patterns because they are easier to tie in smaller sizes, float extremely well, easier to see, and have better hook ups with a lower riding hook point. They also are very realistic with how they ride in the water. This pattern is a pretty quick tie, extremely durable, and effective. This makes it a must have in your box. We love to drop an unweighted soft hackle with this trailing behind it with great success. This pattern is most effective tied in size 14-20.
