Fiery Emerger

2013.12.06.emergerHook: Knapek Midge Pupae #14
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Brown
Body: Polishquills  Stripped Peacock Orange
Thorax: Hareline Hare’s Ice Dub Rusty Orange, 2xCDC
Wing: 2xCDC White
Legs: Mallard Flank

This pattern I found on theonfly.com and adapted to a different color scheme. The fiery red/orange of this emerger will make it a great trout/grayling fly that I now have to wait until april/may (until the ice melts away here in Norway…) to actually test. The body on this came out ok, I should have bugbond on the peacock quill, but the one I have is to thick to apply to such a body.The other thing I would experiment with is to have a bit more legs on to make them stand out even more

Top view: the legs will create a good footprint on the surface
