While Don is best known for his fantastic classic wet flies and streamers, he is also an accomplished tyer on a commercial scale. He has begun to present patterns on his blog that stray from his traditional offerings. The beginning of a wonderful library of trout patterns in beginning to emerge, and this latest really has me wanting to hit the vise. Don has some wonderful descriptions of the materials listed in the blog post, and what I like best about this parachute is the way the post is tied in. The little bump of foam before the post will really make sure this thing floats well.
