Para Hackle Emerger

This is an untested pattern for me, you guys are the guinea pigs, it might sink like a rock.

Hook; TMC 2487
Thread; Olive 8/0 Uni
Shuck; white antron
Body; Olive UTC D-rib
Thorax; Olive ice and rabbit
Hackle; Med Blue Dun

The Hackle is tied parachute style on an extra long antron post, you then tie the post to the front of the fly and pull it on through forming a ball of hackle at the top.

Steve Schweitzer is the originator of this pattern
