, Video: How to Tie the Sulphur Breadline Emerger, Salmon Club Iceland

When fish are coming to the surface but won’t touch your dun patterns, it’s time to try an emerger, and this easy-to-tie pattern has all the attributes you look for in an emerger imitation: it sits low in the water, is easy to see, and offers the right silhouette. In this latest how-to video from Tightline Productions, Tim Flagler walks you through the process of creating a Sulphur Breadline Emerger. I like the way he offers tips and tricks for applying each material–from dividing the Antron Yarn to trimming the hackle collar. I am digging that the new videos are shot in 4K resolution. The picture is spectacularly sharp, even at full-screen.
