The Foam Para Emerger features a sturdy foam post and a life-like profile. It’s low-ride allows it to sit just within the surface film for when trout selectively taking emergers.
Blue-Winged Olive Emerger
A favorite method of fishing this fly is to trail it behind a parachute BWO dry. It’s light enough to not drag down the entire rig and two flies are always better than one when trying to hit such an iconic hatch!
Green Drake Emerger
Mention the words green drake and watch fly anglers start to salivate at the thought of huge trout naively rising to the surface for these jumbo bugs. The truth is, a lot of the feeding goes on for emerging insects which makes this pattern quite deadly. While others are scratching their heads wondering why their dries are drifting by untouched, have your net ready because you’ll need it!
One of the most underrated hatches out there is the sulphur hatch. Hordes of these cream-colored bugs can blanket streams across the country, bringing large fish to the surface and creating memorable dry fly action. Don’t overlook the emerger, however! Fish will happily slurp the sulphurs hanging innocently in the film while the adult versions scurry towards bushes on the bank.
