RS2 Emerger Variant Fly Tying Video

So simple this pattern makes you mutter, why didn’t I think of that! Don’t let the simplicity of this pattern turn you away. This is an absolute fish catcher!!!! You can fish this fly with a light dressing of floatant in the surface film, as a dropper off your dry fly, or as a dropper behind a small flashy nymph. Choose your mayfly, match color and size, and then give them a try. You may be surprised!

    The fly is called the RS2 after the originator in Colorado. It was his second attempt.

  2. Kevin Byes says:

    That’s an RS-2…Pretty popular fly here in Colorado…invented by a guy who’s last name is Rim I believe and it was his second and improved version of the fly. RS-2 stands for Rim Style 2.

    I was told by an Asian man on the Big Horn River 15+ years ago who lived down by Castle Rock Co, that he had invented the RS 2. Had no reason to doubt as heard it had come out of Colorado.
