Featured Fly - Biot Body CDC Post Para Hendro

Yeah say that five times fast. The name pretty much describes the fly to a "t", this is just an awesome looking dry fly and fish love it. I have always been a big fan of the profile of a parachute fly, but not so much a fan of the way they land on the water. So I decided to change the post to CDC and this guy will land post up every time. Change the body color and size, you have any mayfly you want. Change the color to the appropriate spinner color, and yup, you have one of those too. It's a great fly to have in your box.

Hook: TMC 100 sz. 14-16
Dubbing: TCO East Coast - Hendrickson Pink
Biot: Turkey Biot - Hendrickson Pink
Tails: Mayfly Tails 
Hackle: Whiting Grizzly 
Para Post: CDC - Natural & Chart.

Step 1: Make a small dubbing ball at the hook bend. This will help split the tail fibers .

Step 2: Tie in 4 to 6 tail fibers. Then take your thread and split the fibers, making 2 tails.

Step 3: Tie in the Turkey Biot. I like to tie this in, the length of the body, it helps to not break. 

Step 4: Strip 2 CDC feathers, cut the junk off, and tie in. (cdc puffs work too)

Step 5: Thread wrap the post, standing it up.

Step 6: Tie in the hackle. 

Step 7: Wrap the biot forward, keeping the ribs close together.

Step 8: Make 2 wraps of hackle around the post, and tie off.

Step 9: Trim the cdc to the length you like. Whip Finish and cut thread.

 Step 10: Go FISH!!!
