Olive Dry & Nymph Flies - Upwinged Fly Patterns For The Ephemeroptera Family

Often confusing, Olives are a generic name for a range of flies in the Ephemeroptera family. This range incorporates flies usually found on rivers including Large Dark Olive (Baetis rhodani), Medium Olive (Baetis vernus; Baetis tenax), Blue Winged Olive & Sherry Spinner (Ephemerella ignita) and Small Dark Olive (Baetis scambus) and flies found on stillwaters including Lake Olives (Cloeon simile) found on large stillwarters & lakes and Pond Olive (Clieon dipterum) found on ponds.

Fishing With Olive Dry Flies

As  with all dry fly fishing for trout and grayling presentation is critical, use lightweight floating flylines, a 2 to 5 weight is usually the maximum required with a tapered leader to turn the fly over and enable it to land neatly. Use floatants, try Gink as a floatant unless it is a CDC fly as Gink blocks the fibres. You are better to use Semperfli Desert Dust Dessicant which dries the CDC for re-casting.
