John Barr's BWO Flashback Emerger

In this fly tying tutorial, I demonstrate the procedures and techniques for John Barr's BWO Flashback Emerger, which represents the stage before the mayfly becomes a dun. This is an effective pattern that John has been fishing for nearly 30 years, and I encourage you to not only examine this pattern, but also attempt a few of the variations (and share them with us on the comments section of this page).

Thanks go out to Allen Fly Fishing for the use of their N205BL hook; check out that hook and others at:
