Shucked Up Emerger

The Shucked Up Emerger is just another snowshoe emerger style pattern that I never leave home without.  The pattern itself is adaptable to any mayfly hatch you could encounter, and a simple change in the wing and/or body color will do the trick.  I now use the Partridge Klinkhammer Extreme hook for this pattern as I feel it has the ideal shape and gap for this style of fly.  This pattern was just featured in Eastern Fly Fishing Magazine and is a relatively easy tie.  In another month we should be in the thick of the beginning of our trout season so tie a few up for yourself and have at it.
