#32 Parachute

2013.05.dryfly.me.parachute-32

 

Hook: TMC 518 #32
Thread: UNI 17/0
Tail: Soft hackle
Body: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly
Wing: Poly Yarn
Hackle: Whiting Bronze Brown

As small as they get: going for the same pattern as the Aurivilli but had to change to the brown hackle since my white/black one didn’t have small enough featheres. It is possible to do parachute down in this size, it is just a matter of getting small enough material to be able to tie it on. And: to have the eye-sight to get the hackle on there, I really should get a magnifier when tying #30 and below, it gets hard on the eyes!
