Foam Emerger

This fly uses a foam wing case to make a fly that is unmistakingly a midge emerging pattern. The foam is less subtle than the krystal flash emerger, and when you know the trout are feeding on emerging midges then this is the go to fly for me.

The Daiichi 1140 has a turned up eye, so there is nothing getting in the way of a hook set. This is important when fishing these small flies. I have lost lots of fish due to the hook ripping out, and this hook will give you a bit more gripping power.

Hook: Daiichi 1140 - Size 20
Thread: Veevus 16/0 - Black
Wire: Ultra Wire - X-small, silver
Wing Case: Ultra thin fly foam - white

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
