Split Case BWO

$2.25$2.50

Joe Mitchell’s Split Case Blue Winged Olive (BWO) is a great choice for imitating emerging baetis nymphs.  The Split Case BWO has a sparse, segmented body leading up to its hotspot wing case. The “hotspot” wing case acts like a trigger to fool some of the most selective trout around.  Baetis nymph imitations work year-round however their greatest importance is just before and during spring and fall hatches.  Some of the best fishing of the year occurs with tiny baetis nymphs.

Description

Joe Mitchell’s Split Case Blue Winged Olive (BWO) is a great choice for imitating emerging Baetis nymphs.  The Split Case BWO has a sparse, segmented body leading up to its hotspot wing case. The “hotspot” wing case acts like a trigger to fool some of the most selective trout around.  Baetis nymph imitations work year-round, however, their greatest importance is just before and during spring and fall hatches.  Some of the best fishing of the year occurs with tiny Baetis nymphs.

Fishing Strategies:

We suggest carrying both standard and tungsten versions of Mitchell’s Spilt Case BWO in sizes 20-22.  We fish both versions as an attractor in a two-fly nymphing rig.  The tungsten Split Case BWO works especially well in a dry-dropper setup.  The olive “hot spot” on the fly along with the tungsten bead makes this fly deadly during the early stages of a blue-winged olive emergence.  Tie one on and you will quickly see why the Split Case BWO has become one of our go-to patterns for selective tailwater trout chowing down on tiny Baetis nymphs.
