Fly Tying: Rainbow Emerger

I tied up just a few of these Rainbow Emergers some years ago. Tucked them away in a fly box and forgot about them. I originally tied a Central Oregon pattern called a Roxy Rainbow (partridge wrapped wing and tail, rainbow Krystal Flash strands wrapped for abdomen, peacock thorax, ribbing optional). I was first intro’d to the Roxy on East Lake (Oregon).

Here, with the emerger, I used a Guinea feather for the tail and then wrapped in a (sloppy) abdomen of Rainbow Krystal Flash then made a couple wraps of grizzly hackle and overlaid the body and hackle with the remaining Guinea and tied it off. The intent was to fish this pattern in the upper strata of a lake as an emerger patterm. I believe it still has some merit and the abdomen could sport various colors of Krystal Flash/Tinsel.

Photography: Campfires & Reflections

Flame CAMP CREEKA time of quiet reflection. Whether inside or outside, the initial revelry is over. The fire was started with flare and excitement. The marshmallows, S’mores, burning stick tips and adding too much wood are over. The fire has settled in. The ghost stories are over. Now one just stares into the coals beneath the flames, smells the smoke, feels the heat, hears the pops and cracks and reflects upon the past day. Sleep beckons.
