I have to agree with @coolhandwilliam
That is an amazingly proportional tie. Here one of
the first serious hatches of the season as well as one of the last is a multibrood BWO in sizes 20 and smaller. My trout like the emergers better than full subsurface or dry patterns. I’ll have to consider trying that green hotspot Kenan. Might be a trigger that gets my fly noticed among the naturals.
On my waters, the early and late broods are often heavy. I typically see a feeding “rise” that isn’t on the surface but just under it as the naturals struggle to break the surface film. Keeping track of one artificial among the many naturals in the water isn’t easy fishing. Maybe that hotspot will help. Thanks for posting the pattern.
Thank you Bill,I love to fish with Emergers and i tie Pheasant tail emergers in 3 ways ...With orange hot spot,green hot spot and without hot spot.Trust me there is time that Graylings are picking with orange and do't want with green,amd oposite.
I like to tie Emergers on nymph hooks and when emerger fall on surface it go under the surface,cdc pull it up and it's perfect imitation of hatching nymphs .Try it
I’m sorting through my materials to try this one Kenan. I don’t have the green Raidzap so I’ll have to build a green thread hot spot and cover it with clear UV.
How many pheasant tail fibers do you typically use to wrap the shank and do you coat the hook with glue or just rely on the ribbing to keep the PT fibers in place?
It depends of hook size,on sizes 16-18 i'm using 3 fibers and wrap it counter clock side and ribb it with wire clock side.I don't coat hook with glue becouse when PT fibers get glue on it thay change collor,and it's not same as rest of body..as hot spot you can use veevus hot spot threads you have orange and green .cheers Bill
