Bergman: Babcock #8


Hook: Kamasan B170 #8
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black

Tail: Goose Shoulder Yellow/Black
Body: UNI-Floss Red
Rib: UNI-Mylar Gold/Silver #16
Wing: Goose Shoulder Yellow/Black
Throat: Whiting Hackle

Another Bergman this morning: I will try to choose some of the patterns where I have material, and this yellow/black one stood out when looking through the collection. The goose shoulders I have is not the best quality, but good enough for creating these small wings. Some minor things that could do with improvement: there is a gap between the tip and the red body and the head is not varnished good enough, but I’ll leave that for the next time.

Long Winged Emerger

dryfly.me.2014.01.08.emergerHook: Daiichi 1167 #14
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Yellow
Body: Hareline Hare-Tron Dubbin Pale Yellow, UTC Ultra Wire SM Gun Metal Blue
Thorax: Hareline Hare’s Ear Plus Dubbin Dark Olive
Wing: 3xCDC Dark Olive

This low-hanging emerger is a very good fly to keep when targeting trout: the hook will break the surface tension and sit low in the water while the CDC will keep it afloat. A few drops of floatant (don’t put anything on the body!) will keep this in perfect position. I chose a long and fat wing on this to be able to float it down a river and keep it as low as possible in the water. The white body with the blue rib is a good visual clue, I could go without ribbing to loose some weight, but with the amount of CDC on this fly that should not be needed.
