Good to have a selection in your box of all three spiders, I like them in 16 & 18's. I also tie a variation in olive.

Re: Smurf Emerger

Smurf is the fly creator Smeraglio, not the fly! ;) :lol: I have never met him but got the pattern from Jack Dennis years ago. Smurf and Rick Hafele have done work shops on advanced nymphing techniques.
