This fly tying video shows how to tie an Olive Flash Emerger. A small bead head fly that can be made to imitate a mayfly, midge or other aquatic insect that has been washed under and is at the mercy of the river. I use this pattern throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall, especially during the PMD, BWO and Baetis Hatches. This fly can be tied with a range of hook sizes, I often tie an Olive Flash Emerger with size #18 and #20 hooks.

The sound in the background is a customer and I taking turns while we fish in one of my favorite spots. Fly fishing in the Colorado Rockies is as good as it gets. The rivers near Aspen, CO are full of cold water and hungry fish. If you would like to book a guided fly fishing trip, go to http://www.riplips.com for contact and info.
