Go2 Emerger

There is a reason why I call this pattern Go2 Emerger..... enough said. The great thing about this pattern is that it so versatile. It has proven to be successful in all levels of the water column; you just need to find were the fish are feeding. The Go2 midge in black has been the most productive for me. It works extremely well during small midge and trico hatches. I now some of you are saying "midges don't have a tail", I know, but somehow the fish can't stop eating this fly. I also tie this pattern with a light cahill thread to mimic a PMD or Light Cahill, as well as an olive brown thread to mimic a Blue Winged Olive. Tie some of them up and see for yourself.

The Go2 Emerger is tied on an AFF N304 (straight-eye, 2x - short, reversed bend hook). This is my favorite hook that Allen Fly Fishing produces. It's thin wire and perfect reversed bend makes it a superior emerger hook. Check out their full line of hooks and beads by visiting

This fly bears a striking resemblance to a pattern in Tony Lolli's go to flies, named Clints emerger the differences are minimal, but the flies ability to absolutely slay LL salmon in early spring when lil BWO are coming off the water, or when midges are clustered up is undeniable.
