Bedraggled Emerger fly tied by Barry Ord Clarke

Bedraggled Emerger fly

A cracking fishing fly with a interesting hackling technique, both parachute and collar hackle in one. This presents a very nice footprint for an emerging mayfly and also looks extra buggy!

Please give this pattern a go, you will not be disappointed!
