#19 Paradun

tied by dwiltshire
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: TMC 102Y #19
Thread: Sheer 14/0, tan
Hackle: Badger, rooster
Wing: TMC Aerowing, tan
Tail: Coq de Leon fibres
Abdomen: Wapsi superfine, lt. brown

Tying Instructions: Tie in the tails and dub the hook from 2/3 of the shank, backwards towards the bend / tails. Spin the bobbin to chord the thread and wind forwards in open wrpas to form the rib. Tie in the wing and dub the thorax. Then hackle around the post. I like to whip finish under the hackle too.
Presentation Tips: This is a great fly either fished singly or NZ style behind a larger dry.
