Quill Body Parachute


My personal favorite. I use this fly as a "pilot fly" to see what's happening on the water when there is no apparent hatch or rising fish. Works well from the beginning of the season to well into its end.
Hook:TMC 102Y
Tail:Moose Body Hair, two fibers forked
Body:Stripped Peacock Quill
Wing Post:Yellow Calf Tail
Thorax:Tan Synthetic Dubbing
Hackle:Dun, parachute style

The only thing to be careful of is to make he body as slim as possible.
