Default Orange Brown Paraloop

Ive been meaning to tie some mayfly parachute flies for a while, so here is one with an orange loop (I also use white) I like the loop because you get a big indicator for little body bulk

Hook- #16
Tail- Brown or Furnace
Body- Camel (colour) tying thread
Post- Orange antron yarn
Hackle- Brown or Furnace

Nice fly, Chris. I could see that working in many different body colors.

How do you tie the paraloop (I've never done one)? Is it just tied in, looped up and down and tied off? Or is there something else going on that I'm not seeing? Also, do you reinforce the base of the paraloop with vertical thread windings, as you would with a regular post?

Thanks,

Allan
