Deer Hair Emerger – Hans Weilenmann

This is a nice little Bob Wyatt pattern that Hans ties up. It’s a pattern I have sort of avoided tying in the past because it looked a bit tricky to get the wing right, but Hans makes it look quite easy and I’m going to re-visit the technique.

Thread: Uni-thread 6/0, Brown
Rib: Tying thread tag end
