Tying a Thorax-Style CDC Blue Winged Olive

Producer: Tim Flagler

Matt Grobert ties a Thorax-Style CDC Blue Winged Olive, a pattern which works well on even the most selective of fish.

As Grobert says: “The fall months are a prime period for hatches of Blue-winged olives, particularly on cloudy, showery days. In the Autumn, I typically will fish #18-22 in this style, and use patterns that are simpler to tie for the smaller ones that hatch his time of the year.”
