Hi AvidMax fly tyers! Learn how to tie this ridiculously small yet deadly fly!
The Tron Emerger is a simple and extremely effective mayfly emerger/nymph pattern developed by James Spicer. It can be tied in several color variations with Olive, Brown and Black being the most effective colors. It is also tied entirely with one material called Zlon (or Antron as a substitute). As this material is twisted to make the body and thorax, it develops perfect segmentation and a semi-translucence effect. This is the key to the pattern and it is very effective on picky trout!!
