A slight variant of Bob Wyatt's supremely effective emerger. I rarely use anything else these days when fishing 'dry' on stillwaters. It pays to have a selection of colours, but fiery and ginger shades are rarely refused any time of year. No Gink needed - as with Hogs, brush the body material up into the deer hair for extra buoyancy.
