    I have some REAL frustrations with small parachutes so I began looking for alternatives, especially for the Yakima. I have tied this example size 18 and the trick is to turn the fly over on the table and splay the post out in a full circle, then daba little blob of epoxy and/or head cement in the center, it dries, keeps it shape, floats like cork, and catches fish...
