Deer Hair Emerger

Deer Hair Emerger

Hook: Hayabusa 373 #12
Rib: Copper wire UTC small
Body: Hare’s fur dubbing UV plus
Wing: Deer Hair
Legs: Knotted Pheasant tail
Hackle: Red game (rooster)

Been tying a few of these over the past few years in addition to hoppers. The deer hair wing really adds to visibility, especially in failing light. Preferred deer hair is Nature’s Spirit Comparadun, it’s finer and the natural is quite a light colour. Simply clip the hackle to adjust position in the surface film.
