Posts: 287Again, yesterday, the old adage about a BWO hatch occurring only during cloudy, rainy weather was dismissed. I had one for nearly 2 hours yesterday on a bright, sunny, blue-sky type day. Antonio and I have fished several BWO hatches in the sun and I'm sure we'll see more.

I am guessing this may be more common in the fall, when shadows are long. I know I've fished Baetid emergences in teh sun in the fall.

Posts: 287Maybe, Paul, but Gutcutter and I, or is that me, fished BWOs last year at the end March in sunny cold temps. Like they say, there are no absolutes in fly fishing or tying.

You are right, there are few rock solid absolutes in nature, but there are trends of varying probability -some quite high.

"No absolutes" is a mantra from my Purdue Entomology days. It certainly holds true for most of biology and entomology by extension. Feathers5: Where are you located? General global location is what I'm after. I.e., state, province or country.

I always have trouble identifying bugs
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.
