Barr's BWO Emerger

tied by Bugsy
Fly Type: Dry, Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: Your favorite dry fly hook, standard or 1XL
Thread: To match natural
Tail: Stiff brown rooster hackle fibers, clipped to length
Abdomen: Fine olive dubbing, synthetic (superfine) or natural
Thorax: Gray dubbing, synthetic or natural

Tying Instructions: John Barr pattern

Simple fly, but keep it slender. Secure wingcase fibers prior to dubbing thorax, complete thorax, bring fibers over top of thorax and secure with two thread wraps. Pull several fibers back along each side, make two more wraps, clip unused fibers, finish head. Leg fibers are slightly longer than thorax.
Presentation Tips: The fly shown is the "dry" version. It may also be tied in a "wet" version on a heavier hook, either curved (scud) or straight shank.
