    Default Parachutes tied on the bend

    I have been looking for about an hour now for a pattern I have seen before but I dont know the name of. Instead of the post/wing being tied in the traditional spot near the eye it is tied over the bend of the hook. I have the fly tied already I just dont have a clue on how to whip finish it because its backwards.

    So if anyone could name that fly or point me in the right direction that would be awesome.

    Thanks,
    Tyler

    Tyler i think you may be referring to Roy Christie's Reversed Parachute using a loop of 4lb mono as a post--

    Here's a step by step for you from a UK forum:

    UKFlyDressing - Roy's Reverse Para

    An "extended reach" Matarelli whip finisher (with a wider "N" shape) might be a help in whipping if you happen to have one lying around, though it shouldn't be necessary.

    That's the fly. Although I tied mine way differently. I just tied it like a normal parachute on the bend. I will try and get a pic up if I get a chance.

    oooooo....Roy's para SBS was awesome...now I'm itching to get to the bench and try it out. I use the mono for postless para's but haven't tied them backwards like this...very cool. Thanks for the link!!!!
