About dennyk
Hi all, well I'm 59 years young and up until 2014 was a traditional bowhunter, I was forced to end that career due to blown triceps in both arms. A friend of mine talked me into getting a crossbow. I took deer with it but the challenge is not the same and I ceased having fun with it.

Enter my renewed love of fly tying and fly fishing. Despite the circumstances of how it came to be, God saved this for a time in my life that I can really appreciate it .

My wife and I are empty nesters with a beautiful daughter and 3 awsome grand daughters. I know they are gonna want to go fishin' with grandpa. Looking foreward to taking kids fishing.

For employment I have worked in the printing trade for the last 40 years and through the good times and bad I am truly Blessed.

To borrow a phrase of a man I have great respect for:

"Keep The Son In Your Eyes"

Glad to be here!

Best material for parachute posts?

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?

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 crack a beer and enjoy.

Cool stuff........
