Size 26 Parachute BWO Dry

Was a little bored today, wanted to try something different. I have always liked the challenge of tying small. Really pay close attention to the abdomen of this fly. Took a little trick I learned from Herm Degala to create the segmentation on the abdomen.

Hook: TMC2488 size 26
Thread: 17/0 Trico white
Tail: 3 fibres Coq De Lon feather
Abdomen: Olive micro tubing with the Coq De Lon fibres inserted
Post: White Float Viz
Hackle: Blue dun
I do not know If this is a sign of a sick mind.
Hope you enjoy.


  1. That's a real nice tie Carl!
    The extended body is a fantastic small fly innovation and I'm a big fan of the TMC 2488 in smaller sizes.

    Love it!


  2. Carl,

    That's pretty sick!!!

    I'll take a few of those.

    Very nice photos as well.


  3. Thanks guys, still trying to improve the taper of the front half of the body
