^^^^ What he said.

Also tiers can work at home, so wives can tie and look after their children. In some societies there are not many ways women can earn money especially working from home.

Several years ago I had the opportunity to tour the Waspi factory in Mountain Home, AR.  That is how they do a lot of their packaging.  They will take a large bag of dubbing and a bunch of little bags to a women at her home and she will do the individual packaging and labeling.  Same with all sorts of their products.

Started with their version and went from there; although it’s more involved than the patterns I normally use for this emergence, I can see it making a good splat when it hits the water.

hook - WFC Model 3 #10
thread - Uni 6/0 tan 
rib - xsmall wire silver
body - Ice Dub tan 
body hackle - ginger 
underwing - Congo Hair Shiner Tan
shoulder - sharptail grouse
wing - pronghorn 
head - 1mm foam tan 
indicator - 1mm foam orange

Regards,
Scott

Thanks guys!

After spending some time looking at her initial attempt, she decided she wasn't satisfied with the outcome.

So...she sat down again last night and gave it another go.  Definite improvement from the first attempt (top) to the second (bottom).
