Hook: TMC 101, size 12

Tail: White microfibbets

Body: Mahogony goose biot

Hackle: Badger

Notes: Thank you @SBPatt for suggesting this Craven pattern. Opted for a dubbing ball to split the microfibbets, just find that easier and I like the look. Fun to tie. Bring on those spring/summer evenings!

Playing around with a variation on the first one; added a shuck and wrapped the body around it, which probably won’t make much difference.

thread - Veevus 8/0 tan 
shuck - Congo Hair shiner tan 
body - pronghorn
wing - Congo Hair shiner tan 
shoulder - ginger

Mixed Color CDC & Biot Baetis Emerger

Perhaps not the prettiest but definitely one of the fishiest patterns I fish.  I am not sure exactly why it fishes so well, I tell myself that the CDC creates movement, no matter the reason it simply works.

Materials:

Tail: Bronze Mallard

Shuck: TroutHunter CNE Dubbing in black

Abdomen: Canada Goose Biot in brown olive

Ribbing: Semperfli 0.1 mm in copper

Coincidentally with the video post on tying a Stimulator, I had been tying a few myself.  Went down to West on Thursday and picked up a nice Collins neck and saddle and wanted to try it out on a few flies.

These are tied with deer hair tails and wings.  The bodies and thorax are Chicone fettuccini foam.  Soak these in Rain-X and they will float all day.
