Ok so I donâ€™t have a lot of experience fishing emergers but know that trout take them a lot , perhaps more than the duns and spinners. Iâ€™ve had some luck fishing them employing the leaiaenring lift with a tiny piece of shot but donâ€™t have confidence in my abilities to get them in the surface film. Any advice?

There are many kinds of emergers. If you're fishing a nymph-like emerger or soft hackle, try powdering it or greasing it to put it in the film. If you can't see it, you can drop it about 18" off the hook bend of a more visible dry, which can serve as an indicator. A klinkhamer style emerger can be fished just like a dry, but the butt will be under, and some fish seem to like that.
