See also the most recent issue of Fly Fisherman Magazine. Paul Weamer has a good pattern that can be tied with CDC or Snowshoe Hare. I tie a larger wing closer to the eye of the hook, but all of these will work. I think the fly Taxon linked to is a super pattern, though I'd tie in more wing. But it depends on the kind of water you'll be fishing. The flatter the water the less wing you'll need to keep it floating, and the sparser profile may catch more fish in flat water. Good luck.

Thank you guys -for the info. I got to fish to day, did well
with a blue wing olive that was going off around 10 am rained
all day.
come 2:00 low and behold many blue wings reappear
but no hook ups- after carefull observation here comes the Sulphurs
not many, very large size 10 or so- the trout were slamming them !

I had some small imations and some nymphs only hooked one on a nymph
pattern and lost him.
I really need to come more prepared.

I use about the same pattern as Taxon posted, but I use pheasant tail fibers for the tail and dark part of the body. Works pretty good.
