.....lol "a new can of beans".

There is nothing new about the stage "emerger" with regards to the fly fisherman. AJ McClane talks about emergers in his book "The Practical Fly Fisherman" and the book was published in 1953; and I'm sure it was old news then.

Sometimes you just have to dig a little deeper into the sports history and books. You will find that lots of "new ideas" have been worn out in the past and forgotten until somebody with a sharpened pencil brings it up again. I know that I have to dig before I make conclusions...the first recorded fly "the Hipporus" was prolly an emerger by today's definition.

carry on

In the second (1952) edition of Ray Bergman's Trout, he gives a dressing for an "Emergent Dry Nymph (Brown)" that he attributes to Ernest Hille of Williamsport, Pennsylvania. It's what we would now call a no-hackle pattern, with just a dubbed body and some quill-slip wings.

Trout - Ray Bergman - Google Books

The parachute-style emerger I tied isn't really my own invention. It's based on some of the emerger patterns in Thomas Ames' Hatch Guide for New England Streams. It's also similar to many Klinkhamer patterns, except that it's tied on a swimming nymph hook.
