  7. That's good advice, Shoe, IF you have the materials to "get familiar with" in the first place.For a tier that DOESN'T have the material ... what would be good substitutes for fox fur? That's me, I don't have any substitutes ....

  11. Well to me the video is different from a paraloop or hackle stacker. The Chauncy Lively & Roy Christy style pattern, as shown by Cammista, results in a fly that looks like the OP's image, much more than a straight paraloop. The method of tying down the loop, winding the hackle inside the loop,then pulling the loop tight, results in a thin, flat disk of hackle, much like a parachute. Here's one in our fly DB by flyslinger that shows the style. I'm not sure if flyslinger is active, but maybe he or TCTrout can clear this up. Hackle stacker/paraloop results in a "bush" of hackle, sort of a hemi-sphere, not a disk. One of ScottP's lovely paraloops as shown in his SBS.
