love the sparseness of the klinkhammer....

 

 

the parachute fly was developed many years ago.  according to Leonard, they were developed from the old GLIDER  series old salmon flies, from around 1900.  

 

there are just so many ways to wind hackle on a hook and this technique has been one of the more successful ones.   

 

Very nice work, but a question has just hit my grey matter.  What is a dry fly?  Are we imitating and adult form of mayfly, caddis or stone or other aquatic insect?  Some sort of insect that is caught in the waters surface? An Emerging insect? A fresh wet fly that is floating?  A Greased up muddler minnow?   Anything floating on the surface of the water?  

 

My choice all of the above, depending upon who you are having the conversation with!!!!!

Hi Ted !

 

Of course, this is a dry fly. Mimics outgoing mayfly. Part of it floating CDC and hackle. The tail is part of the alluring and does not fulfill the role of keeping flies over the water.
