The Story

The Breadline was designed for those times when fish are keyed in on a certain stage of the hatch. For those times on the water when you want to pull your hair out. Those times when we question why we are standing in the middle of a river waving a fly rod around at the same fish that has been rising and splashing for the last hour. We've all been there. Enter the Breadline Emerger. The highest level of enlightenment among us fly fishers is when we have thrown nearly every fly in our arsenal and then we find "the one" in the corner of our box. The Breadline Emerger is just such a fly. Don't fish a mayfly hatch without some.

Sulfur; sizes 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing emerger Perfect mayfly emerger. I bought a few of the blue winged olives and will definitely be getting the hendrickson and sulphur.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from obvious must have The Bread Line Emerger sulpher version 18 is a must have for any one who fishes western water PMD hatches. On spring creek waters it's a perfect indicator and on most of the tail-waters I fish it holds it's own as a "go-to" in some PMD hatch situations. For the BWO version I always look first to see if size 22's are there and I'm often disappointed. In all the many waters I frequent never have I even seen a size 20 BWO! I'm not saying 20's don't exist or that 20's don't work. Only that they don't exist nor do they work on the waters I fish -- and these waters are far from being "hidden".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great emerger pattern I fished this on an early BWO hatch recently and it was fantastic when other patterns weren't producing. Glad I had it in my box!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bread Line for the Foam Line Nice to see these types of emergers coming online from Orvis! Great bugs for non-tyers and a good selection of colors and sizes. Now lets get the prices down a bit or offer specials when buying three of the same size.
