Korn's Biot Emerger
Folks, I've been tying dozens of these Korn Biot Emergers for Parks Fly Shop on hooks sizes #12-18. Shown here is the BWO version, but you can vary the colors for PMD's, Sulphurs, etc... They are fun and relatively easy to tie. They are a very good pattern to use when the bugs are emerging or there are duns on the water. I almost never fish a dun pattern anymore. The fish are attracted to the seemingly disabled cripples and emergers. The fish recognize that these flies are in trouble and can't get away. You only need use floatant on the wing and the upper hackle. Catch a bunch!
