The Menamerger

Curtis - December, 2018

Brandon steps in and ties up one of his favorite Mayfly emerger patterns. It's a great one that can double as an emerger as well as a good ol' dry fly in a Klinkhamer style pattern.
I'm a huge fan of the "butt-hanger" style patterns and this one's got a sweet buggy abdomen and uses a couple of our newer Trouthunter dubbings
