Description

An emerger is a nymph on the point of emerging as a winged adult that is struggling to penetrate the water's surface tension. Typically drab and non-descript, it is best represented  by a soft-hackled wet fly fishing just sub-surface cast along the food line.

Emergers are fished suspended in the surface film and are particularly effective during evening rises in the warmer months.
