Strolis’ BWO Flymph

October 17th, 2009 · No Comments

Here is another video by Richard Strolis, tying the BWO Flymph.

Earlier this year, I was fishing during a very nice BWO hatch. The bugs were covering the water, it seemed like there were 20-30 flies per square foot on the water.  The fish were going nuts on this bountiful hatch. However, I was having a tough time fishing. I couldn’t tell which fly was mine, it was lost in the crowd of naturals. Even if I could make out my fly amongst the masses, why would a trout choose mine over all the others?  I thought of the “un-match the hatch” strategy, but instead tied on a soft hackle BWO fly, like Richard’s BWO Flymph, and let it swing.

Since the fly was on a tight line swing, I didn’t need to worry about seeing it, I could feel the fish (use the force, Luke). I started picking up fish with this strategy.  Give it a try.
