Pueblo Emerger Fly Tying Instructions

pueblo-emerger-fly-tyingThe Pueblo Emerger is a Blue Winged Olive Mayfly Emerger pattern developed for the Arkansas River Tailwater in Pueblo, Colorado.  The Pueblo Emerger is a basic and life like Blue Winged Olive imitation.  The Pueblo Emerger has no flash or bead.  This was done on purpose.  The Pueblo Emerger is best tied without these additions, at least for the area in which it was developed for.  The Pueblo Emerger can also be tied with an olive or brown body, although the orange body is my favorite!
