    The white parachute post looks like it can be intimidating to tie, at least judging by the few YouTube videos I've watched.

    Calf body hair and coarse polypropylene yarn are the two materials mentioned in the videos I've seen.

    Is one of these materials better than the other?

    Is there some other material I should consider for the post?

  4. Jerry French tying an Intruder

You don't get to see his "composite dimension card" as he's making his composite brushes too well..... but otherwise it's a great video.

    It takes him 53 minutes to tie this fly and is about the average for his videos.......so crack a beer and enjoy.

    Cool stuff........
