This emerger is a Dennis Potter fly that works well for any mayfly species. Just change the body and shuck colors for the natural.

Step By Step:
Start thread and wrap a thread base. Tie in some wood duck flank fibers for the tail.
Tie in a small strand of amber poly yarn for the shuck and wrap back. Star securing the yarn up the shank a ways—this helps to build a small amount of material for our thread body.
Take 3 strands of krinkled Z-Lon and tie them in as shown. Trim excess.
Put a small amount of dubbing on the thread to produce the thorax. Make the first wrap of dubbing behind the wing to help prop it up. Finish wrapping the thorax and whip finish head. Trim the wing to length.

Additional Tips/Photos:
  • When fishing this fly, only apply floatant to the wing. This makes for a more realistic emerger presentation.
