Default Re: Very cool emerger

It works now. Not sure what the heck was wrong earlier. Very cool fly. You can do the same kind of postless parachute hackle with actual hackle also. You tie in the stem of the hackle upright like a post, and then dub the thorax with the rest of the hackle stripped to where the hackle starts when it gets back to the post. Tie it off like you would any other hackel and then bend down and tie off the stem of the hackle. Work the stems into the dubbing and it looks just like this fly but with hackle.

This was the fly you meant right?
