Clarkes All Purpose Emerger is without doubt one of my absolute most productive trout & grayling patterns. Tied on a # 12,14 or 16 hook, as here, it makes a fantastic caddis pupa but on smaller sizes, even down to a # 22, it’s my first choice every time for hatching midge.
All Purpose Emerger materials:
- Hook: Mustad C49S # 16
- Tying thread: Sheer Tan 14/0
- Trailing shuck: Pearl Crystal flash
- Legs & hump: Natural European Roe deer
- Body: SuperFine Dubbing: Blue winged olive
