This was a fun fly to tie. I had a buddy in Oregon that wanted and emerger that had a red body and an olive head to use for opening day. I looked at a ton of pics and really didn't see anything that would work so I came up with this and he loved the pattern. I really liked how it turned out so here we are. I also tied some for an emerger swap and these were them. I found some hooks I had that were designed for bead flies. It was designed by Dennis Brown of Logan Utah. I really like the barbless offset wire. It also has a bigger gap.
