Out of all the dry flies tied and ready for action, it is the CDC loop emerger that ticks all the boxes for me. I know I post variations on this theme alot, but trust me, they are a worthy addition. Big rivers, tiny freestone streams, brooks, chalk streams and vast reservoirs have all seen this style of tying persuade fish. Here's another alternative to hopefully whet the appetite:

Hook: TMC 212Y #17
Thread: Sheer 14/0 tan
Abdomen: Wapsi Superfine, olive
Rib: Tying thread, darkened with black permanent marker
Thorax: Rabbit
Wing: Natural CDC
