Is there a certain color scheme emergers follow? For example, would a BWO emerger have the same colors as the dry? Or does each emerger take unique colors, which are unrelated to the dry? I've been looking to tie soft hackles as emergers for their dry counterparts, but am unsure whether there is a standard color scheme.

Thanks so much,

My experience with BWO emergers is they are about the same size and color scheme as the duns. If you google 'BWO emerger" you will get some great ideas for patterns and colors to try. The Barr flashback emerger and CDC loopwing emergers come to mind as favorites....

i really like the CDC emergers. We crushed the browns on the missouri with a little BWO emerger this past april. The loop wing style being the prefered.

My favorite for local waters has been the RS-2. Easy to tie and work great.
