Simple Peacock Quill and CDC Emergers

2 No tags Permalink

These Simple Peacock Quill and CDC Emergers are  easy to tie and can be used  for lake fishing and river fishing in the same time.  The #14 should be the biggest size used. I prefer to tie on size #16  but sometimes I  go down  even on #20 and 22.

I like the sparkle from thorax   but sometimes I had  better days using the  model with a little bit of white synthetic fibers from dubbing as tails.

The hackled emerger worked for me on lakes with short retrieves with long pauses . Dead drift worked well too

The spotted emerger without hackle worked better on rivers and tied on small as possible hooks ( in these case I prefer Varivas 2200 BL). Bellow is a sized #12 tied on E320 Demmon:

For trout I like more the same model with one turn of picric partridge hackle
