Need to fill up a BL box for myself, starting august by tying up some of these parachutes on a TMC 100BL #16 that was very successful up north this summer.
Hook: Mustad 94840 #12, #18. TMC 518 #30
Thread: Sheer 14/0 white
Tail: Soft hackle
Body: Taimen Beaver dubbing, grey
Wing: White CDC
Hackle: Whiting Bronze
A sunday tying session, today with grey and red/brown color combination. I tied up some in #12 and #18, and did a #30 in the end to tie off the family picture above. The #30 is a tying exercise to see if it is possible to scale down to these small hooks from TMC, didn’t come out too bad, the problem (as always with #30) is to find a good hackle that is small enough.
