A few minor changes to Mr Jackson’s version.  Could have skipped the grizzly hen; the pheasant rump was enough.

hook - WFC Model 6 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 olive
tail - pheasant tail
rib - small wire gold
body  - dubbing cream
body hackle - badger 
1st shoulder - grizzly hen dyed golden olive 
2nd shoulder - pheasant rump dyed golden olive 

Regards,
Scott

Took my own advise and skipped the grizzly hen shoulder in favor of the pheasant rump.  Don’t usually trim muddlers in bullethead shape any more but sometimes the deer hair has other ideas.

hook - WFC Model 3 #10
thread - Uni 6/0 olive
tail - pheasant tail
rib - small wire gold
body  - dubbing cream
body hackle - badger
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed golden olive
collar/head - deer hair dyed olive

Jackson's Parachute Hopper - A pattern from Bob Jackson from Kalamazoo, MI in 1978.  Bob started tying in 194 and taught fly tying classes at Kalamazoo College.  This is NOT an easy tie and is quite time consuming to tie and therefore it is not for newer tyers!  Keep a lot of head cement handy!  It seems to fish best during August when the color of the naturals have faded and is a great fly for a hopper/dropper combo as it is an excellent floating fly.

Hook - Mustad 9672, 10

Thread - tan

Tail - mottled turkey feather fibers

Underbody - natural deer hair, tied parallel to the shank and ends tied as a post

Overbody - light dull yellow or cream colored yarn, 1-2 ties under the tail to act as an egg sack

Rib - grizzly hackle, palmered and trimmed

Underwing - red golden pheasant flank feather fibers

Overwing - mottled turkey, extended to the back of the tail

Hackle - brown, tied parachute then post cut short

It seems to me that the palmered hackle would float the fly so what is the purpose of the parachute hackle?

Can you provide a link for the Jackson's Parachute Hackle. Google search did not find one.

Rib - grizzly hackle, palmered and trimmed

the palmered hackle over the body is trimmed so it shouldnt support the fly to make it float

Custom Flies’ and claims that, in his experience, this pattern out fishes any other surface caddis pattern.  A good, quickly tied 2X2 pattern.
