Large Dark Olive

The Large Dark Olive (L.D.O.) is one of the first flies to hatch on the river in spring. Often you can get L.D.O.s hatching on the opening day of the new season if the weather is mild enough. Other times it can be as late as April before they start hatching. Weather conditions will dictate when they start hatching. It is the most important fly for the dry fly angler for the months of March and April and again in September. A must have fly for any dry fly angler in Ireland or the UK.

Author: The Fly Fishing Punk

I’m a Punk from Ireland who is as passionate about fly fishing as I am Punk music. I live in South Tipperary right beside the best of the trout fishing on the mighty River Suir where I spend the river season fishing for wild native brown trout . I also fly fish for coarse fish and during the river trout closed season I mainly concentrate on fly fishing for wild native pike as well as tying trout and pike flies .
