Being that some of you have hinted that there MIGHT be some green drakes out during PFF, I though I'd look for an interesting pattern. This one is from a Paul Jorgensen book, Modern Trout Flies....Problem is that modern for that book was 1975!

Not exactly to spec, but close:

Hook: Emerger Size 12
Thread: White
Tail: Dyed Moose
Body: Porcupine Quill
Hackle: Silver Badger (clipped short on the bottom)

And a little superglue to hold it all together!

Take Care,
Timbros.

That dog'll still hunt, Tim. I'd dirty up the body a little just to mottle it, but the profile's real good. And in fly-fishing terms, anything developed in the last 50 years is still considered "modern". :D

Good idea to mottle it up a bit, thanks! Quills are something that is catskill based as far as I can figure. I got mine years ago from a guy named Mike Hogan at Badger Creek Flytying. He has a crude mail order house in upstate new york. Not sure if he still has em, but his website is eflytyer.com.

Take Care,
Timbros.
