Emergers

 
Emerger fishing flies are neither dry or wet flies but flies designed so that part of the fly hangs down beneath the surface film whilst the other part sticks out above the water. As trout flies go, emergers are very successful as many flies are taked by fish not as they sit flush on the surfce film but whilst they are actually emergering through it. Emerging flies are pretty helpless so they are very vulnerable to feeding fish

One of the most famous emerger fishing flies is the Klinkhammer which was originally tied to imitate the emerging caddis fly.

Emerger trout flies are now used throughout the world on both river and still water and have become and essential trout fly.
