    Broke my PB river brown by a fair bit with this brute. Apologies for the terrible pics but I was on my own in the dark and was more worried about the fishes welfare than the pics. For those who were asking about the weight it is 6lb 2oz Dan

    Prototype emerger

    NickS can have the blame for this one. We were having a chat about the merits of the dirty duster and the jingler so I decided to emrge the two. Not been tested yet but with a good pedigree I am fairly confident. Any criticisms or comments on how it can be improved are welcome as always. Dan
