Local streams had rain last night so It was a wash out with high murky waters,but I had time to get started on my BWO/MB parachutes. Here is what I got so far.

Whatever I had.. turkey biots on the March browns and goose biots on BWO. I'm a little short on biots I have to probably go over to greatfeathers fly shop only 1/2 mile away and restock.

I used very little dubbing to form a tapered body then wrapped biot upwards till tie off. Easiest way I know.
