Parachute Round Of The Well-Stocked Fly Box

Recommended Posts



Well, guys, since I have already received a set of parachutes from Vicrider, and since he IS our Administrator, or Sheriff or whatever he is, I guess the next round will be Parachutes. 🙂. The due date will be May 5 with an absolute cut off date of May 10. All the other rules that we have followed in previous swaps still apply. Let’s tie some Parachutes!

Hey now...you said parachutes in a thread a while back. You could have thrown me a curve and made it buggers or streamers and I'd just had you use the paras as a bonus fly. I really like doing parachutes anyway and wouldn't have minded that at all. Looking forward to a couple of completed swaps coming my way.

Purple Haze has replaced the para Adams as the goto dry on many waters. Maybe the darker body just sends a different signal or is more easily seen but it's becoming very popular by all the reading I do.

Just speaking of purple, it was a goto color for me in years of bass fishing. A purple worm. On cloudy days a brass single spin spinnerbait with purple skirt. Purple Rattletraps. Purple skirts on jig and pigs. Generally it was a strong color for me, particularly on cloudy days even though you'd think bright colors on cloudy days but that wasn't the fish usually told us.

Just adding a tidbit or two.
