Fly Tying: BWO Emerger (thread body)

My experiment for a segmented thread body fell flat so to speak. The first layer, olive, was fine, but the over layer of black laid flat and obscured much of the green. I could twist the black thread and see if I get a finer black ribbing. Or an ultra fine wire ribbing that would provide a cleaner appearance.

    As I noted to your other comment: the ‘tail’ of Zelon is the tail and the nymphal shuck.

    All fly shops will likely have Zelon or some antron product in as many as six colors. The dangling synthetic fibers represent a couple thing: the nymphal shuck or exoskeleton that the emerger/dun is attempting to exit and leave behind; and the tail.
