About tutorial metrics:
Difficulty: Tying in a clump of material, palmering a material, and x-wrapping dumbbell eyes are considered easy techniques to master. As additional techniques are needed for a pattern, the difficulty rating increases.
Time: The average time the fly will likely take you to tie once you get proficient at it. Obviously the first few are going to take longer.
Cost: The total cost of all the materials needed for the fly, compared to all the other flies in the Fly Tying Video Vault.
Notes: It is important to use this SC15 as it allows you to tie the craft fur on the bend of the hook. This gives the fly a craft fur wing that aids in the falling/parachute action of the fly. The deer hair can be a little ticky to work with. Keep your finger pressed against the hook and to stop the material from rolling off on the side.
This fly has been proven deadly in the keys as a popular permit pattern. Brought to the scene by Bruce Chard, this pattern falls in a way the fish can’t resist. As this fly falls in a parachute style with craft fur, legs, and hackle claws upright – the fish reaction is normally ferocious.
