How to Tie the RS2 Midge/Emerger
The RS2 pattern was developed more than 30 years ago by Colorado angler and tier Rim Chung. The name of the fly is short for “Rim’s Semblance 2,” and it fishes well as both a midge or a mayfly emerger. The original version featured natural beaver fur dubbing and saddle hackle for the wing. Many more modern versions, such as the one shown here, feature different materials, while maintaining the profile of Chung’s pattern. As with many great patterns that have stood the test of time, you can fish the RS2 in many different ways–on the surface, in the film, subsurface, or as a dropper off another emerger pattern.
