Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: Partridge 15BN #20 - #14
Thread: 14/0 Sheer, tan
Abdnomen: PT fibres
Rib: Uni Pearl mylar #16
Thorax: Hare, dyed olive
Wing: Natural CDC

Tying Instructions: This is simpler follow up to the PT paraloop. A simple CDC loop wing. Change the number of plumes to suit hook size. One on a #18 and up to 4 on the bigger flies - perhaps a #14 or #12. allow fibres to trail and protrude to give the sense of movement and life - this is a struggling emerger! - make it struggle!
Presentation Tips: Upstream and dead-dridt. Avoid drag! Sink the tippet, but if the fly drowns and goes sub-surface, watch the leader for takes.
