Hogan’s S&M Nymph- BWO
Hogan’s S&M Nymph has been one of our better BWO patterns on the Madison, especially in Fall. The creator, Hogan Brown has this to say about the fly: “I came up with this fly because I needed a slim profile mayfly to imitate baetis and other mayflies that I encountered while fishing my local tail waters. Most commercially tied mayfly nymphs are too fat to accurately imitate the natural. They are over dressed most commonly in the thorax. The critical success factors for the S&M Nymph is its thin abdomen and its two-tone thorax. The natural mayfly is trim. Furthermore, the wing case on the natural is a different color than the thorax, usually a little darker. Most small mayflies are darker on top than they are underneath and I designed the wing case of this fly to imitate that. I fish this fly under an indicator or as a dropper off of a dry fly. I find fishing it in the riffles and flats prior to a hatch to be very effective. Because the fly is tied very thin this mayfly imitation will work in both spring creek and freestone situations.”- Hogan Brown. Hogan’s S&M Nymph is available in size 20.
