The Global FlyFisher - A Good Place to go for Online Fly Fishing and Fly Tying
GFF on Facebook
A blast from the past:
Effective anglers carry a myriad of emerger-style flies to take picky trout during hatches. While there are many styles of emergers to choose from, para-hackle style flies may not come to mind first. Tying emergers para-hackle style is a forgotten technique not often taught and even fished less. We at GFF can't understand why!?! Read along as GFF partner Steve Schweitzer walks you through the
techniques for tying a para-hackle emerger.
...here, nothing there:
Sometimes trout and grayling sip "nothing" from the surface. You have tried the smallest parachute in your fly box - size 18. What they are taking is much smaller. You look again into your fly box, and right - there is no "Nothing" there.

Cul de Mayfly
: A small mayfly, which may be (mis)taken for a dun during the sometimes the concentreted hatches on late August and Septemper evenings. It uses a hollow extended body, parachute hackle and wings of cdc stems to float high.

Tying Flies the Paraloop Way
: My first thought was probably the same as yours - what is "paraloop"? Paraloop is part technique, part style. Take a piece of a parachute, a bit of a thorax dun, and some thoughts of a comparadun, mix, and you'll arrive at a paraloop.

Vincent Su Parachute
Vincent Su ties a perfect parachute using his 720 vise. The vise makes it easy to tie perfect parachutes. A 720 vise not only rotates on the hook axis but also horizontally.
