Here is a SBS of the hares ear sugar lump emerger. Please excuse diff coloured backgrounds, under the table lamp my camera pics up different tones

1. Run a bed of thread to 1/3 length of the hook.


2. Next take the booby eye and chisel the end into a flat edge, this will make it easier to tie onto the hook.


3. Hold the tip of the booby eye in your left hand and hold in place over the front 1/3 of the hook.


4. Use a loose loop of thread whilst holding the foam and then pull tight and a few turns to secure should leave you with this.


5. Now run the thread over the excess foam to tidy up the body and to make it taper towards the foam. This will give it a better profile.


6. Next you want to tie in your rib material and run the thread down to the bend in the hook so keep an even profile. You can use any kind of rib here, be it tinsel, flexifloss or wire, I have opted for UTC Medium Red Tinsel.


7. Now you want to get your dubbing material, natural rabbit dubbing in this case.


8. Twist your dubbing onto your thread, you can use beeswax but I don't bother. Twist in one direction to make sure that the dubbing sticks to the thread.


9. Run the dubbing up to the tapered section of the head. This can be as messy as you want as it will have the rib to keep it in place when you have finished the fly.


10. Next wrap your rip up the body in even turns, leaving a gap between each turn for the dubbing to come out, wrap the opposite direction from the way you run your thread. This will keep the dubbing in place. Tie it in at the head and trim the excess.


11. Now dub more hares ear around the head, I tend to make this area thicker by using more dubbing. This is personal preference tho so do what you feel will work for the fly. I put a wee bit of dubbing under the foam directly behind the eye.


12. Whip finish, trim the foam to the desired length and you will be left with the emerger. You can varnish the head if you wish.


Enjoy
