EMERGERS & BUZZERS
Try these on Rising trout on any water, if fish refuse the #14 try the #16 then the #18, size is often the solution to difficult fish rather than pattern. Some of the tyings are swimming pupa/nymphs and sink, while others are dry/emergers, left untreated they will sit in the film, ginked they float, see what the fish think!
The floating qualities of CDC are well known but this delicate feather is a super imitation of the wings,legs and body which is another good reason to use these patterns. These sets include: CDC 'F' Fly a swimming emerger tying, CDC Shuttlecocks, in the film special, CDC Hares Ear, untreated this will fish soggy in the film, ginked it will float. Red and Olive tyings in these sets.
