    BWO Nymph

    This pattern has been pulling duty for me across most of my waters for several years now. I prefer it fished without weight, along with another heavy nymph or a split-shot.

    I have yet to find a foam box (ripple or slotted) that doesn't either compress the top or bottom of a dry fly. After a lot of searching I only use compartment boxes now.
