Hey Guys,

Ive been tyin some pretty small bugs lately, and I was trying to find a way to be able to see the flies on the watter, so Here's my idea.

Hi-Vis CDC Blue Winged Olive

Hook: Diiachi Straight Eye Dry Fly Size 22
Thread: Ultra Thread 8/0
Tail: Slate Gray Hackle Fibers
Body: BWO Superfine Dubbing
Wing: Medium Dun CDC Puff with Orange CDC in the Center*

*the Orange CDC in the center is created by tying the Dun CDC on top of the hook, and then a smaller bundle of the Orange CDC directly on top, and then wrapping the thread dam in front to prop it. Once you add the dubbing around the wing, it closes the Dun CDC around the Orange.

Here's What You See...

Here's What the fish see... (note that the Dun CDC covers up the Orange so the fly appears like a natural)

Any Comments or Criticisms Welcome

Thanks,

Colin :mrgreen:

In my humble opinion that fly should be a real fish getter. Have you tried it on water (glass test)? I know from my own experience a BWO is hard to keep track of.

Looks great, Colin. Good idea for tiny flies, especially in water that is moving.

Looks great. Works great on sulphers and for Dad's with aging eyesight too, ask mine :) . I'd beef up the cdc amount, double it or more, unless you are just fishing glass smooth water.
