Fly Tying: Emerger

Another tweaked, variation of what I have been tying this weekend. In this instance, I used a single herl of dyed peacock for the abdomen. The thorax was dubbed and teased out a bit to trail back over the abdomen. The CDC wing and Starling hackle were tied in with less material on the size 16 hook. The thread was 14/0 Sheer. I really like the Nature’s Spirit bleached/dyed peacock sticks; very nice for gills in the abdomen area of a mayfly nymph. Or, for the thorax area where natural peacock herl is often used.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
