The Blue Winged Olive
Richard Formato of The Roanoke Times extols the virtues of a fly that works year round. The Blue Winged Olive. The BWO is probably the one fly that I have the hardest time seeing on the water. Partly because of the color scheme and partly because of the small sizes you typically fish them in. Richard solves this problem by fishing his BWO with a parachute post of brightly colored material that makes them much easier to spot on the water.
