re: Who's tying now

I tie a LOT of parachute type patterns. Klinkhamer types are my favorite (my avatar). Parachutes seem to be the best of multiple worlds for fishing either an emerger, cripple, spinner, or dry fly all at once. Virtually any classic dry fly has a parachute type variant. Put a white, pink or chartreuse post (I use turkey flats, but poly-yarn works well too), and they are easily seen while riding in the surface film and the trout don't care about the color of that post. Now that my boxes are filled, I'm just experimenting with other patterns I find on the web while waiting for season to begin again. Cheers.
