    Sorta/kinda like a synth ParaWulff with a nested indicator; being ocularly challenged, I appreciate the addition. Not quite sure if the winging sequence is how Jake ties it, but this way worked for me. Tied here as a Callibaetis (the name's a dead giveaway); change colors to suit your needs.


    hook - Dai Riki 320 #14
    thread - UTC 70 tan
    tail - hackle fibers barred cream
    body - dubbing tan rabbit
    indicator - Parapost flo orange
    wing - Congo Hair white
    hackle - barred cream (oversize by 1)


    Mash down barb and attach thread

    loop the Parapost, tie in (gap width long), trim butt

    take a hank of CH underneath the hook, pull up on either side of indicator; x-wrap in place, then post them both

    create thread bump at point above barb

    even tips of a clump of hackle fibers, measure (shank length); tie in (get the torque/tension right and it'll set itself at the desired angle; got it right first try this time, which is rare)

    since I forgot to tie in the hackle 2 steps ago, I'll do it now; shiny side out

    back to the tail; dub thread, dub body

    wrap the hackle down the post, cup side up; let it hang, tie off at the base, trim tip

    one wrap through the thorax, half hitch x 2, SHHAN; trim wing, go fish

    Great idea to add the indicator. Probably helps quite a bit if you are fishin a dry/dropper on a choppy lake.
