Emerger Patterns (Reversing Directions by Roy Christie)

 I first saw this reversing the body on the shank in Tying Emergers by Schollmeyer & Leeson. I have not explored this enough, perhaps some of you have. Found another example of this tie on the excellent Kossiedun blog re Roy Christie’s Reversed Emergers pattern.

    http://reversedparachutes.blogspot.com/ could be worth a look, still under construction but your comments welcome.
    The reversed parachute is designed to pull the tippet under the surface when it lands, the rest of the tippet will follow – you get more takes and better hook-ups with this design than any other I know;

    As far as I understand, This fly pulls the tippet underneath the surface, so the tippet will not disturb the surface (Like normal flies). But I haven’t tried this one yet.

      Find similar patterns and ideas for emergers in the Jim Schollmeyer and Ted Leeson book “Tying Emergers, A Complete Guide”. This is a really good book.

    Very interesting, not very well understand its advantages, but I liked the hint of books and bought one. In Brazil it is very difficult to find books like this.
