BWO Comparadum Fly Overview

Let me introduce you to one of my all-time favorite fishing flies, the BWO Comparadum, also known as the Blue Wing Olive Comparadum. This amazing little fly has been around since the early 20th century, created by the legendary American fly tier, Fran Betters. He designed it to mimic the Blue Winged Olive mayfly, which just happens to be a trout's favorite snack. I absolutely love this fly for its high-floating, easy-to-see design that has helped me hook countless trout over the years. The Comparadum's split tail, dubbed body, and upright, bushy hackle give it a lifelike profile that really makes those fish go wild!

BWO Comparadum Imitation Design

One of the things I love about the BWO Comparadum fly is how it perfectly imitates the look and movement of the Blue Winged Olive mayfly, especially during its adult and dun stages. I've found that the fine, natural deer hair used for the wing and tail really adds that extra touch of buoyancy and visibility on the water's surface. The body of the fly is usually made with some kind of dubbing material like fine synthetic or natural fibers, giving it a realistic profile and texture. What really sets this fly apart for me, though, is the upright, bushy hackle wrapped around the body. It not only looks like the insect's legs but also keeps the fly afloat in those tricky, turbulent waters.

BWO Comparadum Best Uses

I can't tell you how many times the BWO Comparadum has saved my day on the water, especially when targeting trout during the Blue Winged Olive mayfly hatches. These hatches usually happen from spring to late fall, and I've had the best luck on cloudy or overcast days when the water temperature is between 40 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit (4 to 15 degrees Celsius). As a dry fly, I've found that the BWO Comparadum works best when fished on the surface of the water, particularly in slow-moving pools, riffles, and seams where trout love to feed. The high-floating design lets me see the fly easily and present it accurately, so I can detect even the most subtle strikes from fish. Trust me, this is one fly you don't want to leave out of your tackle box!
