Parachutes Dry Flies.

The Mellow Yellow.
The V-Wing Parachute.
    The parachute style of dry flies is one of my  favourite fly patterns.1- Because it's easy to tie and 2- It works on almost any type of fish species that prey on insects in the rivers, like Trout, White fish, Pan fish and many others. 3- The best part is that it float very well & sit nice and flat on the water surface. I will upload a few of the parachute patterns that I tied up recently like this Mellow Yellow, Using a yellow Peacock quill for the body & a type of yellow flash for the hackle post, died yellow grizzly neck hackle and a wood duck tail.. The next fly is one of my new fly pattern that I created by mixing a Klink-Hammer & a Evil-Weevil together and I call it the V-Wing Parachute. The tying steps is pretty simple.

Body- mixed yellow ice dub & antron
