The Yellow Owl Emerger Dry Fly Pattern is a surprising pattern, that works great for Trout.
This Fly Tying Tutorial is in association with www.fullingmill.com and is demonstrated by Davie McPhail.
In the Beginning of this tutorial Davie shows us 3 different ways of tying the Yellow Owl Emerger Dry Fly.
The purpose of the 3 styles is for different depths that the fly will sit in the water. If you tie the Yellow Owl Emerger Dry Fly with NO tail it will sit lower on the water surface.
This Yellow Owl Emerger Dry Fly Pattern starts out using a nymph hook instead of a dry fly hook.
This I found to be very surprising, not to mention the use of wire for ribbing. This goes against all reasoning in Dry Flies (in my opinion). The nymph hook is heavier and the wire has a bit of weight, yet this fly will still float.
This Trout dry fly pattern uses CDC feathers to make it float, and it is really quite simple to tie.
As we all know … Dry Flies can be so very exciting to fish with, and this Yellow Owl Emerger Dry Fly is no different.
Just watching the Trout sip your dry fly off the surface should get anybody’s adrenaline flowing.
Another great thing about this Yellow Owl Emerger Dry Fly is that it should be rather easy to see floating on the surface. The CDC feathers will make it float nicely on the waters surface. Also the dubbing used in this pattern will give the appearance of legs to this Dry Fly Pattern.
Remember the different ways to tie the Yellow Owl Emerger Dry Fly Pattern to determine how deep it floats. This is just another fantastic Trout pattern from our friend Davie McPhail.
