    Default Paraloop style ?

    Recently seen some paraloop style flies over on http://www.danica.com/flytier/rharvey/rharvey.htm

    ...and was wondering how you go about tying them, has anyone got a step by step or know of one ?

    Alistair there is a book on the subject. Have a look here. At 30 a bit steep to show of one technique. Still he covers the subject well.

    Hi Alastair, Naw not really popular, an American technigue that Mr Mouter takes a step or two forward. Ties reasonable emerging patterns I guess. but one for the purists. Would not have thought it justified a book though & at 30 you would have to be keen. Better bet would be library borrow.

    Both his books are available from coch-e- bondu at 9.99 each, I just bought them last week.
    As Highlander has said, I wouldn't have paid 30.00 each for them, that's not to say they are not good books, they are, just not 30.00 good.
    All done

    I've been using dries of this style recently. some success on them. they float lower than klinks etc and can be harder to see. however i imagine the non uniform print on the water the hackle leaves is realistic looking.

    i've seen it done on one of the above sites but i still cant master tying a fly paraloop style with a post. a post would help visibility greatly.

    mind you i'm obsessed with the dry sinking so any fly that i can't see easily on the water will be at fault.
