Tying the RS2

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

A proper RS2 can be extremely frustrating to tie, but Matt Grobert ties his on a size 18 Dai Riki hook and makes it look easy. The RS2, authored by Rim Chung, derived its name from ”Rim’s Semblance 2.” It can be fished as either a nymph or emerger and is typically used to imitate small mayflies or midges.

    Nice video, Charlie Craven has a good walk through in his book too.  I just don’t cut the tag end off and use it like here to split the tails you just wrap back with it going straight off the back of the hook.

    I’d like to see a video of how he gets such a tight dubbing cord.
