Lawson's Halfback Emerger

The Halfback Emerger is a PMD emerger pattern developed by the legendary fly tier Mike Lawson. This fly imitates an emerging PMD mayfly as it morphs from a nymph to a dry. The Halfback Emerger is best tied in sizes #12-20 and is very deadly in the West!!

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.
