How To Tie The Hi-Vis Parachute BWO: Fly Tying Video

With cool weather comes the BWO. Covering many types of mayflies in the US we look forward to the seasons that bring these bugs to life. They bring dry fly fishing early in the spring and then again in the late fall. This Hi-Vis parachute pattern is a go to dry fly for when the hatch is in full swing. With a pink parachute post you will enjoy watching your drift rather than struggling to see where you fly lays. Throw it at some rising fish and wait for the take!

Join us every week for Fly Tying Tuesday as we take on a new pattern!  Subscribe to our YouTube channel to see it first, and for all our other product, how-to, and fly fishing and outdoor videos.
