Emerger Bodies
By A.K. Best

The emerger is that stage in the insect's life when it swims to the surface and floats there while it climbs out of its wet suit to fly away. Trout will often appear to rise rather casually to this state of the hatch as if they know they have a little extra time. The body of an emerger should be tied slightly fatter (more like the nymph body) and a good shade darker than the fully emerged dun. Take as much care on the taper as though it were a dry fly because the trout will be looking up at this fly. ~ AK
