|Hook:||(M) 94840 or 94833|
|Tail:||Light Gray Or Olive Hackle|
|Body:||Olive Brown Fur|
|Legs:||Light Cream Hackle|
|Thorax:||Dark Olive Brown Fur|
|WCase||Medium Grayish Olive Ball Of Fur|
Notes on tying:
1. Tie in five hackle fibers at the bend of the hook for the tail.
2. Lift the thread up and forward to splay the back of the tail.
3. Dub a tapered body 2/3 up the shank of the hook.
4. Dub grayish olive fur on thread and work into tight ball. Slide this ball on top of the thorax area and tie the ball in front and back.
5. Tie in cream colored legs on both sides in front of ball. Add drop of cement to the ball base and let it flow back under the ball of fur.
6. Dub dark olive brown fur for the thorax.
This emerger pattern basically follows Mike Lawson's directions offered in the book Mayflies, the Angler and the Trout by Fred Arbona, Jr. The dubbed ball represents the unfolding wings of the nymph just before the nymph becomes a dun. Fish it on the surface during the Baetis hatch.
