Paint Brush Emerger

tied by WYKnot
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: Tiemco TMC 2487, size 16-20

Thread: Danville Flymaster 6/0 waxed black

Tail: Trailing shuck of yellow/amber yarn

Abdomen: Polyester fiber from a pain brush

Thorax: Light Brown Antron dubbing

Post: Black Kevlar thread loop

Hackle: Medium dun and dark ginger, tied paraloop style

Tying Instructions: A farily straight-forward pattern, note a couple of different items:

1. After the trailing shuck is tied in, the body is made from a polyester paint brush bristle and wrapped like a quill.

2. The hackle is tied paraloop-style using a stiff thread (like Kevler) as the posting loop and a 2-color hackle (dun and ginger).
Presentation Tips: LIGHTLY dress the hackle with floatant, cast and drift as a dry. Fishes well as an emerging midge, color to match local bugs. Rides low in the surface film.
