Bird's Nest Sulphur Emerger
It's all about sulphurs here in Pennsylvania right now. Anglers who stay on the water until dark will see incredible hatches of these mayflies along with a spattering of other summer flies. In this video from Midcurrent, Tim Flagler shows us how to tie the Bird's Nest Sulphur Emerger. Perfect timing for summer fishing.
