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.

Fly Tying: Emerger’s Trailing Shucks

Still experimenting with a variety of CDC wings and Zelon/Antron shucks. I wonder if the ‘tail’ could be doubled over to form a loop and better suggest a nymphal shuck? There are several materials that can suggest the trailing shuck for a Mayfly emergers/stillborns (synthetics like Antron fibers, feather fibers, ostrich herl). I am anxious to get out and test the options in a BWO emergence.
