Bastian’s Floating Caddis Emerger by Fly Fish Food

Cheech ties up a variation of Don Bastian’s effective floating caddis emerger. The fly is tied on a standard dry fly and tied to sit in the surface film with the aid of a foam back. If you don’t often use extra wax on your tying thread, you may find a reason in the video to reconsider.

Danica Emerger Fly tied by William Ensiferum

William ties a really beautiful fly. This emerger is one of the nicest I’ve seen in a while. The body uses 3 hairs from elk and moose so that there is a color difference in the body. This combination gives the body the look if a stripped peacock quill body. It is reinforced with a coating of UV resin, creating a durable fly body.

The floating portion of the fly is comprised of snowshoe hare feet and deer hair. The fly will float wonderfully while the body dips into the drink. I can’t wait until spring to give this pattern a throw.

Bubble Wing Caenis tied by Davie McPhail

This little CDC Bubble Wing Caenis tied by Davie is a magical little dry/emerger fly pattern. The bubble wing is constructed with loops of CDC and this pattern will really float high. The Canis is tied using high contrasting white and natural gray CDC which should help keep it visible in a variety of lighting conditions. This style looks promising, and I’ll be tying a few versions for this week’s trout opener.
