Red is a great color anytime of year but i find it to be best in fall and winter. My clearwater emerger series of flies are small and stealthy. This version has a black matte tungsten bead. The top is lightly coated with Solarez UV resin which is the best on the market and stronger then epoxy. Grab yourself a few and stick some picky or not so picky trout. These flies are tied to order.
