You know, I ask a serious question about BWOs and I get one response. If I post an inane remark I get followers. I don't get it.
Bruce, as I see it this could be the result of a number of things.
When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

|Hi Bruce, I am a new poster but have been a reader for years. What is it, that you wish to know or want to discus ??? I get to fish them here and there but I have a particular fly and Technic if you may be interested.|

|I would love to help, Bruce, but I fear I am no help at all. I know that on one of my local streams, between 5 pm and dark this time of year, I fish with a #18 comparadun bwo and catch lots of fish. I doubt that is what bug they are actually eating, but I am able to take most the risers I cast too...unless I put them down :).|

|So what do you want to know about BWO's? I'm a fisher and not an entomologist but have been fly fishing for five decades.|

|Bruce, don't worry, they look just like sulphurs - just tie on a #18 sulphur and you'll be just fine...|
|No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...|

Ha! You can't go wrong with a sulphur nymph, Jonathon.

|Baetis brunneicolor...Right here from good old Troutnut...Brucie, do your homework, man! You need me to tie the darn fly on for you as well?! Eric! Take Buster fishing...He sounds like he needs it bad...Get his lucky Santa Claus hat out of storage...:) Post some pictures.|
This is the largest common species of Baetis on our trout streams, and it can hatch in incredible numbers, drawing impressive rises of selective trout.
Anglers may have read in books about Baetis hiemalis, which is now a synonym of Baetis brunneicolor. It appears to have been a name for the fall-hatching brood of this species, which was reported to prefer slow water and weedy habitat instead of the gravelly riffles of the early summer brood.
Baetis brunneicolor is most often praised for the action it creates in the Midwest, but it is locally abundant in parts of the East and maybe in the West as well.
The duns drift a long distance on the water before taking flight, making them excellent dry-fly insects.

I did search the site, but still couldn't decide which Baetis on which to settle my opinion.

|Net some of those critters and have Eric take a look at 'em.|
