    Default Oliver Edwards yellow may emerger

    Another one from his book.



    Put an swimmingnymph hook in your vise

    Wrap some flat lead on it

    Now use very thin thread( i use spiderweb) and tie in the tails,any fibers you want.

    Cut of a piece of flexibody,about 3 millimeter wide.

    Tie this in behind the lead and come back to the tails,as you tie it in you pull it a lil.

    Put on some fine dubbing and wrap till about 2/3 of the hook.

    Wrap the flexibody over the dubbing and whipfinnish.

    On the underside you tie in 2 pair of legs on each side,take any fibers you want.

    Put on some fine dubbing and wrap behind and in front of the legs,this way the legs stand up .

    Cut of a piece of swiss straw/raffene,about 5 millimeter wide and 5 cm long

    Fold this in lenght and wide,tie in op top of the hook.
    Pull the wings a lil down so they stand on the side of the body.
    Tie on this a cdc feather.

    Make 2 wraps with the cdc feather and whipfinnish

    Cut of a piece of swiss straw/raffene,about 6 millimeter wide and 5 cm long.

    Tie this in on top of the hook,try to keep it flat,this will come over the head section.

    Make the eyes from mono and a lightner.

    Tie in the eyes on top,just behind the hookeye.

    Put on some fine dubbing and make the head,bring the thread back to the cdc feather.

    Fold the swiss straw/raffene over the head,if you make it a lil wet it stay's smooth,and make a few wraps.

    Put on some fine dubbing and wind towards the head.
    Whipfinnish here and cut of the thread.

    To bad just 20 pics can be in 1 topic,others in next posting
