Howard Cole's Unusual Usual Flav Emerger - 15:16

Salmonid Flies, Dry Flies, By Fly Type, By Fly Tyer, Howard Cole Send feedback »

Howard Cole started fly fishing over 35 years ago and has been tying flies nearly as long. He has tied flies at numerous events including the Federation of Fly Fishermen Conclave and the Eastern Idaho Fly Tying Expo. Some of his original flies have been published in books like Emergers and Flies of the West. He currently lives with his wife and daughter in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and where he is co-owner of High Country Flies.

Cole says: “Living in the Yellowstone Area, I never take for granted having one of the world’s most diverse trout fisheries right in my backyard. The plain truth is: Trout live in the most beautiful places. Simply observing the subtle rings left by a rising fish, rouses the same emotion that I had when I first came to this sport.”
Please take a look at Howard's site: for trips, gear, and info as well as flies and fly tying materials.


  • Hook: Dai-Riki 300 #14 & #16
  • Thread: Uni-Thread 8/0 Olive Dun
  • Undertail: Z-lon Amber or CDC Gold/ Amber
  • Tail: Wood Duck Flank Fibers
  • Abdomen: Goose or Turkey Biot Olive
  • Thorax: Dubbing Dark Olive
  • Wing: Snowshoe Rabbit Dark Dun
  • Hackle: Sadddle or Cape Hackle Grizzly/Olive

Even thought this fly rides low in the surface film, it is an extremely visible fly for the fisherman. And by changing material color or substituting different materials it is an emerger pattern that can imitate the many categories of mayflies.
