Large Dark Olive Parachute Dry Fly

Parachute dry flies are very successful river trout flies.

This one is size 14 to imitate the Large Dark Olive (baetis rhodani).

It will work well in both fast or slow water and trout will readily take it when they are feeding on emergers, duns or spinners.

The yellow foam post makes it very easy to see even in faster broken water and in low light.

Author: The Fly Fishing Punk

I’m a Punk from Ireland who is as passionate about fly fishing as I am Punk music. I live in South Tipperary right beside the best of the trout fishing on the mighty River Suir where I spend the river season fishing for wild native brown trout . I also fly fish for coarse fish and during the river trout closed season I mainly concentrate on fly fishing for wild native pike as well as tying trout and pike flies .
