Deerhair Emerger

Deerhair Emerger A lovely pattern Steve Rhodes showed me last week is the Deerhair Emerger, originally designed by Bob Wyatt (Trout Hunting, 2004). Steve kindly gave me a couple of his own flies: size 16 hook with a curved shank, darkish hare's ear body ribbed with yellow silk, a still darker thorax (hare's mask) and a wing of coastal/fine deerhair. And that's it. A variant can be made with a body of stripped quill. The artificial represents hatching duns - 'emergers' - and fishes with the body under the surface and the wing/thorax trapped in the film. As a representation of LDO duns or olive uprights this is a fine tying: simple, durable, practical. As Steve showed last week, in the appropriate circumstances it also works very well.
