Pueblo Emerger Fly – Video Fly Tying Instructions

Happy Fly Tying Friday! Learn how to tie the Pueblo Emerger fly! It’s small, but the fish oh so love it!

The Pueblo Emerger is a Blue Winged Olive Mayfly Emerger pattern developed for the Arkansas River Tailwater in Pueblo, Colorado. It’s a basic and life like Blue Winged Olive imitation and has no flash or bead.  This was done on purpose. The Pueblo Emerger is best tied without these additions, at least for the area in which it was developed for. It can also be tied with an olive or brown body, although the orange body is my favorite!
