Turkey Emerger

Turkey Emerger



The Turkey Emerger is one of my favorite "dark" patterns. On those high and sunny days when too much flash is not working, this is the pattern I turn to. It has done very well for me across most of Pennsylvania,  and tends to be the bottom fly for me when fishing a tandem rig.
