Snowshoe Rabbit Emerger Daiichi 1167 #14
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Yellow
Body: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly Golden Yellow
Wing: Hareline Snowshoe Rabbit Feet Olive
Ribb: UTC Ultra Wire Olive

I have had a couple of Rabbit feet around for a while but not actually using them for a pattern. This consists of only two materials: the dubbing and the snowshoe (except for the last one where I added a rib), I left the fly as sparse as I could by choice to see how it will behave in the river I’m heading out to tomorrow. Fly-Rite dubbing makes it possible to make really slender bodies for flies like this!



CDC Emerger

Hook: Knapek Midge Pupae #16
Thread: Sheer 14/0 White
Body:  Hare’s Ear Plus Dubbin Dark Olive with UNI Mylar #16 Peacock wrapping
Tail: Taimen Krystal Flash
Wing: Single white CDC
Thorax: Hare’s Ear Plus Dubbing Dark Olive

A Emerger with a little bit of bling, and the Hare’s Ear dubbing makes a nice body. Using a single CDC feather this should sit low in the surface.
