the blue winged Olive - no hackle

Recommended Posts

We have the season for "the blue winged Olive" (Ignita) these days, so i had to make a few cdc no hackle versions of this mayfly.

 

Hook: tmc 102Y #15 (the Ignita is a bit smaller so i choose to make the body a bit shorter on the #15 hook)

Tail: Coq de leon

Body: Kapok dubbing (touch dubbed with olive on of the split treads and a yellow/orange on the other to make a special olive look :))

Thorax: cdc dubbing (olivebrown)

Wing: cdc fibers

 

Terje!
