Olive CDC Emerger
This is a simple yet effective BWO emerger pattern. A version of this pattern was
first shown to me by fellow TU member Bob Dunstan; while we were fishing the Lackie
in the fall of the year.
Many times during a sporadic hatch of olives the trout might be taking emergers instead
of the duns. If you're getting refusals on a dun pattern give this emerger pattern
a try. It is a simple pattern to tie, it consists of only a body and wing. To tie
this pattern start the body at the rear of the hook and dub up to the 1/3 point behind
the eye of the hook. Next, tie in 2 or 3 dark dun CDC feathers and finish with the
dubbing behind and in front of the wing up to the hook eye.
