Hi Carl,

 

Thanks for the pattern. I really like it as I'm looking to add some new emerger and cripple patterns to my boxes. I'm hoping that you can elaborate on a couple of things (hope I'm not being too demanding!):

 

1) Can you describe how you would fish the fly? (i.e. deep nymph, swing, dropper under dry etc)

2) The most notable materials and why you chose them. For example, you like the shiny wing case material and thought that it represented air under the nymph skin. Or anything else that you feel might be a trigger for the fish.

 

If I'm asking details that you're not comfortable sharing, then obviously feel free to disregard. I don't want to step on toes. But it would be helpful info for me in better understanding emerger patterns.

 

Thanks in advance and for the pattern!

Rich

Rich,

 

I pretty much fish this fly as a deep nymph. I have fished it in the flim. It seems to work better as a deep nymph. I do tie this pattern with out the flash back material, the flash sometimes seems to be a little much.

 

Thanks
