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.
