    "chemically dependent?"
    This is an emerger pattern that I decided to tie that has been productive for me here in AZ.

    Thread: Black

    Tail: deer or elk hair

    rib: thread or fine wire

    abdomen: superfine dubbing

    thorax: deer hair doubled over itself, then dubbed with hair's ear

    wing case: turkey

    The deer hair extends the length of the hook and then is doubled over at the thorax to help the nymph float. It's almost like a floating hair's ear the way I've tied it up.
