Tying Grobert's Sulphur Emerger/Cripple

Hi folks:

Today I'm tying up some flies to use on my local creek for imitating the Sulphur Mayflies that are hatching in my area now.  Matt Grobert along with Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions happen to put up a new video on his web site and I loved the fly so much I thought I'd tie up a few... Here are some photo's of my tie and the link to Matt's video and material list, enjoy.

Trip Report 11 May 2012

Hit the Creek for some early morning action.  
I caught the 8:30 am. Sulphur hatch and the browns a plenty!

Yeah - they were after these guys and I had some really nice dry fly fishing.

My buddies kill birds!

Jim on the left and Ben on the right both got nice gobblers with me at Cherry Creek, NY... It was 4 days of very wet hunting!
