Default Favorite BWO pattern and what do you tie it with?

Curious what your favorite BWO pattern is and what materials do you use?

Dry is the sparkle dun
Hook: 16 - 22
Tail: light antron or similar fiber
Abdomen: olive/olive brown dubbing or olive biot or thread
Thorax: olive dubbing

For nymph I'm becoming a huge fan of the jujubaetis by Charlies Craven

My favorite beatis nymph pattern is an ultra simple fly that I picked up from a local.


Hook: 16-20 Tiemco 3769 or similar
Tail: a few dun microfibbets or wood duck fibers
Body: Black thread, tapered
Abdomen: Thread body, continued
Wing case: 10-12 strands of krystal flash


1: Start thread and tie in tail fibers
2: Wrap thread foward, tapering body as you go. Keep in mind the body portion should remain slim.
3: Tie in 10-12 black krystal flash fibers for wing case
4: Build up thorax area with the thread, trying to keep proportions as correct as possible.
5: Pull the KF forward over the thorax, and whip finish or double half hitch the fly.
6: Coat the entire fly in SHHAN (except the tail fibers)


This is one of those easy to tie flies that you can mass produce. It is easily one of my most productive flies over the course of the year. It's almost embarrassing how simple of a fly this is.

This time of year, the major hatch around here is tiny #24-26 olives
Being so small, I find that a parachute with a thread body and a grey poly yarn (Aunt Lydia's) post works fine and is easiest to tie

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
