Always differing views, even on the basics....I get it, I think.

Who votes for a smooth bodied emerger, and who votes for a fuzzy one.

Or, would you rib an emerger with the dull side of a goose biot or the shiny side?

Byron, I always like to do the smooth body, but I think it's more for me than the fish.

I have tied them both ways (fringed and flat) for the Bat Wing Emerger and the trout eat em' all... :)

Nice looking flies!
