Different colors of turkey biots, dry fly hackle and polypropylene yarn are used to tie variations of the Emergadun. The fly can be used to mimic everything from midges to green drakes.

Fly-tyer Gary Jones works on one of his Emergadun patterns on Tuesday in Four Corners. Emergaduns are designed to imitate the transitional stage of an insect as it emerges through the surface of the water.


If you’ve been fortunate enough to be on a Montana trout stream during a major insect hatch, you know how good the fishing can be. Anglers try - often in vain - to time their fishing trips to coincide with a prolific hatch.

During any hatch there exists a critical moment - the transitional period when an insect breaks free of the underwater world and becomes an adult. At that moment, the insect emerges from its nymphal shuck, dries its wings and flies away … unless, of course, a trout eats it.
