Tying the nymph version of the French emerger “La Peute”

The well known French emerger “La Peute” is a fabulous wet fly well known for how simple and efficient is. A version of it, as a nymph, is super simple and efficient for fishing in ginger clear waters. In the last 2 years I make it using dubbing because I noticed that trout love more the flies made with dubbing.

So here is my 2 versions and a simple video about tying the model with dubbing.


Usually the hackle is made with feather fixed from the base of the stem. Then, because the barbs are very long, they are cut to size. I prefer to fix the feather from the tip and to adjust in this way the length of the barbs. You will see in the video bellow.
