    The Barr Emerger and its many variants, is the product of a frustrating

    day for Barr on a spring creek in 1975. John Barr, who is one of today's most famous fly tyers, had been watching trout

    pick off "yellow specks" all day long, but couldn't find a fly or a

    presentation to crack the code. His stream-side observation of "dozens

    of partially hatched nymphs still attached to the shuck stuck to the

    back of [the trout's] tongue," fueled an intense night of tying that

    spawned what today has become one of the most popular emerger patterns

    ever created.

    Barr's Trico Emerger is a brilliant imitation of a Trico

    mayfly in its emerger life stage. With a prominent and darkly colored

    trailing shuck, a slender grey dubbed body, and a set of bulging black

    wing pads, this emerger is downright deadly in the surface film.
    • This fly pattern is a Trico variant of a fly that was tied in 1975 by John Barr, one of the world's top modern fly tyers after he noticed a cluster of hung in the shuck nymphs stuck to the back of a trout's tongue
    • The fly boasts a long trailing shuck, a slender grey body, and a bulging set of black wing pads
    • Trico imitation in the emerger life stage
    • Use as either an impressionistic searching fly or as a realistic imitation when matching the hatch
    • Fish this fly on a dead drift in slow water; backwater, eddys, and lazy spring creeks are the most productive water types for this fly
    • Determine whether trout are eating sub-surface nymphs or gently sipping emergers and cripples in the surface film and match your nymphing depth to the observed feeding depth
    • Best results occur throughout the morning when presenting smaller female imitations
    • SIZE 20
    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
