EMT Loop Wing Emerger - green drake

I have been busy at the bench lately tying Green Drake EMT Loop Wing Emergers.  EMT stands for "Emerging Mayfly for Trout".   This fly is tied by several others including Craig Mathews and the late Dave Lewis.   I'm not sure who originated it, but this is my version.

I also did a little "practice" video with my new camera that I've attached.  This is raw un-edited video so keep that in mind.   http://youtu.be/wKG7Mc4ov_o

Enjoy tying some up, fish them with just some floatant on the hackle and foam.
