Mart's Peccary Paraloop Emerger
This emerger is great for smaller, slower streams and has proven a very successful pattern for the author. It's tied the paraloop way with no hackle under the hook.
The Paraloop hackling technique has been described in great detail in Moutter's book 'Tying Flies the Paraloop Way' (2001). Moutter notes that the technique is not new: before he came up with the technique and name, other tiers such as Ned Long and Bob Quigley used the same technique. There were two other names for this method: the Hackle Stacker and the Pullover.
One of the advantages of Paraloop flies is that there is no hackle below the hook shank, which is ideal for hookups. The other great benefit of the technique is the profile of the fly: because of the absence of hackle below the hook shank Paraloop flies sit low in or on the water. And that is a big plus, especially for emergers. The Paraloop technique is very versatile: you can use it on any hackled fly that you wish to turn into a low-riding fly.
My favorite emerger is the Peccary Paraloop Emerger. I use it on smaller, slower sections of trout and grayling streams in the hills of Germany and it has proven a very successful pattern.
I use Whiting saddle hackle because this hackle has a thin and flexible, yet strong stem, which is a must-have for hackling around a small diameter parachute post used on paraloop hackles. The new Daiichi 1160 Klinkhammer hooks are a great choice for this emerger. They are light ( a heavy hook turns a low-riding fly into a diver), have the right shape for emergers and are wicked sharp.
