Those flies are all intimidating.  I guess social distancing is inspiring you.

Thank You!
They really are very easy to tie. Just think of them as 4 flies linked together.
The hardest part is that they are small, like tying on a size 22 hook for the abdomen section.
The permutations are endless.

Originally intended to use hare’s ear for the thorax (hence the grey brown thread), but liked the look of the Ice Dub better; too lazy to switch to tan thread.   Here’s Hans’ SBS if you’re interested.

hook - WFC Model 28 #12
thread - Uni 8/0 rusty dun
rib - biot olive
body - hare’s ear olive
legs - partridge 
overbody/wing - Congo Hair shiner tan
antenna - bronze mallard
thorax - Ice Dub hare’s ear tan

Regards,
Scott

Norn that is the first time I have seen that pattern tied, and very well I will add :) . I started fly tying with that book (Christmas 1971) and thought I was going to start a business tying. Had to dust off the shelf and open the book. Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

Parachute Purple Haze

I have always struggled with parachute dry flies, so I decided to practice. After watching a lot of videos and tying several dozen, they are starting to look a little more presentable.
