    Not any more. I have been a klutz at tying these for years and don't think I have ever made one I really liked. But the Winter 2007 issue of Flyfishing and Tying Journal carries an article by Tracy Peterson that addresses all of the problems I have ever had tying parachutes. By following his instructions I tied a decent pattern on the first try and by the time I completed a dozen they looked damned good. Hopefully you are not as hackle handicapped as I have been but if you are this tutorial may well get the kinks out of your parachutes.

    Some Idaho cutts are going to be very unhappy about my new found skills come June. Ive
