The Little Olive Done
The Little Olive Done was originally tied to match those mid-winter, early spring hatches that get weathered out. When the Blue-Winged Olive hatch around you is struggling to take shape, and the dead and crippled begin to pile up in the eddy...This is your fly. Once I see fish begin to appear to be "midging" on the edges when there are BWO's in the air, I know they are feeding on the casualties.
