Bosnian CdC Olives - Ideal Summer Dry Flies
These stunning flies - hot off the vice of 'our man in Bosnia' are absolute stunners and will catch fish all year round.
Tied to give a general impression of hatching and adult Olives & Mayflies, they are best used on a longer leader. Using a longer leader allows for a more gentle presentation, especially when combined with a longer lighter rod employing this method I've caught in mornings, afternoons and evenings.
These CdC Olive/Mayfly imitations are all tied on thin wire Ahrex barbless size 12 hooks.
Our Bosnian CdC Olive Selection contains four different patterns:
USD CdC Olive - Tied in a unique upside-down style, this means that the fly fishing with the hook point upwards - out of the water completely. We are supplying 3 each of these in this selection, tied on a size 12 Ahrex FW541 barbless hook.
Light Yellow CdC Olive - A light yellow thread body (with yellow ribbing) and hare's mask dubbing around the wings. We are supplying 3 each of these in this selection, tied on a size 12 Ahrex FW503 barbless hook.
IOBO Olive - With a hand-stripped rooster feather body overlaid with a class 1 CdC tail , body and wing post, this is a deadly fly It Ought to Be Outlawed. We are supplying 3 each of these in this selection, tied on a size 12 Ahrex FW525 barbless hook.
CdC Emerging Olive - With a yellow ribbed body, slipt-wing CdC and hare mask shuck (still attached) this fly imitates the emerging insect, just at the point the fly takes it from the surface of the water. We are supplying 3 each of these in this selection, tied on a size 12 Ahrex FW525 barbless hook.
