BWO Emerger

 
tied by pennscreekrules
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: Tiemco 2487 #20
Thread: olive 8/0
Tail: olive or brown antron
Body: fine olive wire in loose spirals over thread base
Thorax: olive dubbing
Wing: orange deer or elk

Note: I stole the orange wing from LaFontaine's Halo Emerger. You can use dun deer or elk, the orange works and is easier to see. I will admitt this is kind of hard to keep afloat, but worth the hassel in my opinion. Have some silica powder on hand. All you should see is the wing when it's in the water.
Tying Instructions: 1. tie in thread at eye wrap to back of hook
2. tie in a few strands of antron
3. tie in wire and wrap 3-4 loose spirals
4. tie in wing and dub the thorax. you want the wing to be at roughly a 45 degree angle
