Paint Brush Emerger
tied by WYKnot
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
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.
