Green Drake Emerger
Nothing Earth shattering.

Just a clean design and tie
that I can have confidence in
and fish the heck out of.

This is my first time attempting to tie a traditional Atlantic salmon fly. I am not happy with the wing and topping, and I forgot a hackle at the throat. It was not too difficult to tie, until I got to the wing.
