Sulfur (Sulphur) Parachute Emerger

See video

In this fly tying tutorial, I imitate the stage occurring prior to the mayfly turning into an adult, the emerger stage. Using a sulfur (sulphur) as my base pattern, I briefly discuss the qualities that make this fly an emerger, list the needed materials, and then give a fly tying tutorial of the pattern. This is a great pattern to use once you begin to see trout feeding on the surface during the beginning stages of the hatch.

Featured in this tutorial is a hook by Allen Fly Fishing ( ); this is an excellent dry fly hook for this, and similar, patterns. Also featured is saddle hackle by Clearwater Hackle ( ); I encourage you to utilize this incredible hackle, which is found in a variety of colors.
