Hi-Vis BWO Parachute

tied by lanvaettir
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Southwest US,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
TMC 100BL 20-26 Hook
8/0 Olive Thread
Olive Microfibbets
Hi Visibility CDC
Olive Turkey Biot
Silver Hackle
Tying Instructions: Carefully place hook in vise.
Lay down a single layer of thread along the entire length of the hook starting from just short of the eye.
Create a small bump of extra thread just before the curve of the hook.
Loosely tie down the microfibbets to the thread bump with only 1-3 loops. When they are both in place, adjust them for length (I prefer to make them the length of the hook) and lash them down.
Tie in a single Olive goose biot just above the microfibbet bump concave side facing away from the hook and continue to wrap thread up the hook.
75% of the way up the fly, tie down the Hi-Vis CDC parachute and the silver hackle and wrap it a couple times to create a solid anchor.
Carefully wrap the biot up the eye of the hook and secure.
Wrap the silver hackle 4-5 times around the parachute post and finish.

Presentation Tips: I like to fish these flies along scum lines because they are a little easier to see. They do well on the San Juan and the Green.
