Parachute emerger – by Roberto Groppetti

0 No tags Permalink

This fly is a fantastic model for fishing in fast flowing torrents and rivers. It was developed  after years of experience and practice by Roberto Groppetti, a famous Italian tier which is also  member of Troutline Pro Team.

What I personally love is how deer hair is applied as hackle. The technique is mastered in a way that you  don’t see very often!

Materials:

  • curved emerger type of hook in size #10-14
  • thread black 8/0- or 6/0
  • body: pheasant barbs
  • ribbing: gold wire tinsel
  • hackle: deer hair colored and natural
  • wing axe- antron fixed to stay straight
