Woven Body Emerger

tied by WYKnot
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: Mustad Signature C49S, size 16-20

Thread: Olive Danville 6/0 waxed

Tail: Trailing shuck of amber Antron yarn

Abdomen: Overhand weave, two different shades of 6/0 Unithread (dark thread on top of abdomen)

Thorax: Synthetic dubbing

Post: Working ends of weaving thread, looped over thorax

Hackle: Adams (grizzly and dark ginger)

Tying Instructions: 1. Tie in and add the trailing shuck.

2. Tie in 2 strands of 6/0 Unithread and use an overhand weave to form the body.

3. Tie off the weaving thread, loop back over the abdomen for the loop/post and tie off the loop. I add a 2-3 whip at this point to secure the loop.

4. See Ian Moutter's book on tying paraloop style for instructions on this hackling technique (an excellent book, by the way).

5. Dub the thorax and finish the head.

Presentation Tips: Tie in olive, brown, cream, PMD, yellow, and balck to match local hatches.
