Hope Joni doesn't have a problem with me naming the pattern after her, but I fished it for the first time the other day and it already has several fish, so I'd say she was right in calling it deadly!

Thanks for posting the pictures and running the swap. I don't know the name for mine but don't think I invented it so if anyone knows what it's called, let me know. Look forward to seeing them all!

Fantastic Job guys.

Mine is actually a Snowshoe Emerger. I have grown dissatisfied with CDC since I started using Snowshoe, so I made the change last minute.

The Pattern is pretty simple. (In order of use)
Hook: Gamakatsu c13u #18
Thread: I think it was Ultra Thread 70D in Olive or light brown
Tail: Crystal Flash
Abdomen: Moose Mane (one dark and one light). I have tried coating this with SHHAN but it gets milky and actually can peel off, so I put some 5 minute nail glue on the hook before wrapping.
Wing: Snowshoe Rabbit's foot hair - Dun
Thorax: Arizona Sparkle Dub - Blood Leech

In slow water this thing will float with the body just under the surface all day with just a false cast between drifts to shed water. In fast water you may need some floatant on the snowshoe hair.

Mine is certainly not original, its basically a modified zebra midge, but Joni was talking about tying one with blue wire and how successful they are, which I had a go with. Hence the resulting name!

La_jolla1

How do you get that tapered hackle look? (small in back, larger in front), I've been trying to get that on some small dries and it always turns out the same length even when using short feathers from the collar.

I hackle these from back to front i.e. tie in at the eye and hackle backwards, then bring the thread through the hackle to the eye. Not only does it give a taper but the thread through the hackle especially with a badger gives the hint of a thorax with no extra effort. I prefer Hebert-Miner hackle to get this look.

I learnt this technique from Richard Ward, who has a great series of SBS on his blog.

Cheers

Hugh
