My materials showed up in the mail today.

I'm going to stray a little from Rim's original recipe and use CDC instead of saddle hackle fuzz for the wing case; I may pull it forward, too. We'll see what develops at the vise.

mcnerney,
Your package looks like it went through the ringer, but it made it!

I thought my wife had already opened the package but she said thats how it showed up!

Great flies, way to start us off!

Happy tying all,
Watson

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

Those dubbin combinations really work well together.

Darn...Went to CRO, App Outfitters (which I thought may have been a longshot) TMF, and The Backpackers Shop. I like tying with that stuff so I may have to suck it up and order some materials online...Or trade you a natural for a dun
