In Australia’s Best Trout Flies Revisited Pat Kennedy writes that David’s Aero Emerger has become his go-to fly whenever a hatch begins on the Mataura or its tributaries. He notes that it rarely lets him down. Suprisingly the black wing usually has excellent visibility, and seems to present a credible profile of an emerger dun. When tying the wing, leave a small shoulder to suggest the wing-case of an emerging mayfly. Dub the body very sparsely so that it sinks when wet. Prior to fishing, apply a small amount of floatant to the wing and shoulder only.
