Adams Parachute

Adams Parachute

 
Fly Tying Details;
Name: Adams Parachute
Sizes: 10 - 18
Hook: Kamasan B170 Medium Traditional
Tail: Grizzel hackle fibers
Body: Blue/Grey Fur
Ribbing: Optional fine silver wire
Wings: Calf hair post
Hackle: Well marked Grizzel
Comment: Like the standard Adams the parachute is a very good dry fly. The parachute style sits lower on the water making it more natural looking and the white post makes it more visible
   
Instructions:
  1. First wrap the hook shank with tying thread, tie in the tail and then the post

  2. Return the tread to the tail to add the fur dubbing tapering it forward to shape the body as far forward as the post.

  3. Add a spot of glue to the base of the post then immediately tie in the hackle, and wrap around the post, then tie the end in and clip off, add a little dubbing to the thread to finish in front of the post, then whip finish and add a spot of glue to the head
