Golden Olive Emerger

Loop wing emergers just scream life, especially with those longer trailing fibres. I also like to leave the tips protruding over the eye to add to the 'busy-ness' of the fly. I am certain that little things like this can make a difference to the profile of the fly - and ultimately the success of a pattern. Here's trying some new cdc I acquired today; perhaps a yellow may emerger:

Hook: Partridge Flashpoint 15BN #18
Thread: Bennechi 12/0 yellow
Body: Awesome Possum, natural
Rib: Thread
Wing: Golden olive CDC
Thorax: Golden Stone A/P

Happy Christmas everyone. Thanks for supporting my blog. It makes it all worth while.
