Brian Chan’s BMW is a must have stillwater pattern. Presented as a micro leech most often beneath an indicator this pattern is a great ‘start the day’ choice or during the early spring and late fall over shallow shoals. Tie this fly in a variety of colors including black, maroon (claret), and shades of olive. Mottled marabou versions are also good options.
A black with either a silver rib/bead or gold rib/combination of this fly has also worked extremely well when trout are focused on chironomid pupa but a standard match the hatch approach proves inconsistent at best. Hanging what seems an out of proportion size 12 or even size 14 BMW has saved the day for me too often to be a random event.
