A great step-by-step of how to tie a midge emerger based on the style of popular Italian fly tier Agostino Roncallo.

Hooks: D910 Daiichi #14-18
Thread: 17/0 Uni
first Body: Puf CDC
Second Body: peacock barbs and grizzly hackle
Wing: Grey Dun Wing CDC

check out all of Lucians flies-

Align the tips of the CDC and tie in twice the length of the shank.

wrap the CDC feather just short of the tips and then back to the hook

Strip one side of the grizzly hackle and attach it by the butt end

Tie in the 2 strands of peacock to the rear and the grey dun CDC in reverse at the eye

Trim the butt ends of the CDC and advance, tie off, and trim the peacock

advance the grizzly hackle and tie off

trim and whip finish

    This fly will have a lot of “movement” – looking forward to tying and fishing it. .

    I really like your use of CDC for the extended body. The method should work very nicely for a wide variety of “mayflies”. Thanks
