Featured Fly - CD's Biot Emerger

Here is a fly Casey came up with to fool the picky trout of Spring Creek, it is an awesome BWO emerger pattern that proved it worth last weekend in State College. You can sink it right to the bottom or you can fish it in the film behind an adult, either way its deadly when Olives are coming off.

Hook: TMC 206BL sz. 18-22
Thread: UNI Thread 8/0 Olive 
Shuck: Antron - Olive Brown
Abdomen: Goose Biot - BWO
Thorax: Superfine Dubbing - BWO
Wing: Ice Dub - UV Dun
Wing 2: CDC - Med Dun

Step 1: Make a thread base, tying in the Antron about a 3rd of the way down the hook bend.

Step 2: Tie in a goose biot from the tip.

Step 3: Wrap the goose biot 2/3s of the way up the hook shank.

Step 4: Tie in the Ice dub, right at the end of the goose biot.

Step 5: Dub the thorax.

Step 6: Pull the Ice Dub wing forward and tie off.

Step 7: Tie in a small stack of Med. Dun CDC for the front wing.

Step 8: Dub the rest of the fly forming the head.

Finished Fly:
