tied by ezpickins Fly Type:Wet, Target Species:Trout, Recommended Region:Northeast US, Imitation:Mayflies, Material List: Hook: Standard Dry Fly size 16 or 18
Tail/Shuck: Mallard Dyed Wood duck
Abdomen and Thorax: Yellow or Orange-Sulphur Fly-Rite or other yellow/orange dubbing
Wing: Gray Muskrat Fur from the pelt
Thread: Camel Brown 6/0
Legs: Any dark soft hackle fibers
Tying Instructions: Be careful to tie the abdomen fairly thin. I prefer muskrat for the emerging wing - but gray antron or zelon is a good substitution. Tie just a few (2 or 3) legs on each side.
Add a few turns of thin diameter lead wire under the thorax.
I usually tie this for the earlier E. Invaria as a size 16 then for the later E. Dorothea as a size 18. Presentation Tips: I usually fish this pattern as a dropper 24-inches below a parachute or comparadun. In my experience I catch many more fish on the emerger.
