    Looks like a good simple pattern to tie.

    Not difficult but real effective for trout.
    After reading Oliver Edwards Interview I decided to try this color combination.

    Does the post color matter that much? Essentially on those parachute patterns, the body sits below the surface and the hackle keeps it upright. So can the fish see the post?

    The fish could probably faintly see it, but they don't care. The fly, to them, probably looks like a bug that is glistening in light.

    Hello Cole and TE this is correct that the abdomen of the fly is below the surface. Only the thorax floats on the surface. When correct tied the post is invisible for the fish.
    This type represents an emerging caddis fly.
    The different colors of the post is for a better visibility in the various types of waters you can fish this type of fly.
    Imo the black variant is deadly but again it depends on many factors.

    parachute style emergers are deadly for sure. We fish a lot of spring creeks here in the Ozarks and that's a must have pattern. Good job Mike and thanks for sharing!
