Target Species: Trout
Recommended Region: Northeast US
Hook: Emerger, size to match natural
Extended Body: Poly Yarn
Tails: Dark Blue Dun Microfibets
Extended Body: Turkey Biot over Superfine Dubbing (used to build taper)

An extended body tool will make this MUCH easier to tie. I rigged up a C-clamp from an old vise and attached it to my desk. I then ran the cord from a retractor through it and fitted a barrel swivel to the end of it. Pull the cord over to the poly yarn (tied in forming a loop), then use the rotary function of my vise to wrap my thread and materials on the extended body.
Best used on still or slow water.

Featured Product Reviews Extra Large Double Sided Clear Lid Waterproof Fly Box - 7.5" x 5" x 1.65" (Slit, Easy Grip or Streamer Foam) Very good fly boxes I have 6 of these now and am extremely pleased with them. Getting the flies in and out of the foam is easy and a box of weighted clousers doesn't tear the foam off the back of the box. I keep boxes in my pontoon and in my boat.
