Default Re: 2013 Swap #2: Emergers

Watson: That was partly my fault, I was trying to stuff that return envelope in at the last minute and there was a big line behind me. LOL!
At least I'm glad the post office didn't fail!
I had a tremendous amount of success last season with this pattern. In fact, I finally broke off the skunk using this pattern on Kelly's No Tellum' Spring Creek. Most of the time I used this with a big dry/dropper rig, with the first dropper being a small BH nymph followed by the Rabbit Foot Emerger or alternately just trailing the Rabbit Foot Emerger in the film behind the dry.

Here is the receipe for the Tom Rosenbaeur Rabbit Foot Emerger:
Hook: Dai-Riki 125 size 16 (or any curved scud hook)
Thread: Brown/Olive Uni 8/0
Shuck: Amber Antron or Zelon
Under Wing: Natural colored CDC feather
Wing: Dun colored Rabbit Foot hair
Body: Brown/Olive dubbing
Thorax: Black Hare-Tron dubbing
