Blue-winged olive spinner cripples

Blue-winged olive season is just around the corner and I'm looking forward to those long, warm summer evenings; fishing into darkness with big trout slurping down spent spinners all around. This variation on the Kelly Galloup spinner cripple theme will be my fly of choice when such an opportunity presents itself.

For anyone interested, there is a step-by-step tying sequence for it here.

That looks a good pattern, will definitely tie some up to try on the Derwent here in Derbyshire. BWO time just around the corner here too. Even saw my 1st mayfly today, it must have its dates out a bit! I really enjoy your blog, keep it up.
