All of a sudden it's September! Where did the summer go? As we head closer to Fall, it's time to think about the BWOs. BWOs are my favorite hatch of the year. While I make sure I have plenty of dries with me and try to get out on those nasty days, I usually end up fishing more nymphs and emergers to fish than the actual adults. As many of you know, the RS2 is one of my favorite flies to tie and to fish. It just works and the fish don't mind eating it. The pattern below is a Foam Wing RS2. There are many different variations of this fly and they all work. This is just one of the variations. Tie this just as you would a regular RS2, just replace the antron or fluff wing with white foam. Tie some up and give them a try and let us know how you did.
