Biot Parachute Blog-Post & Recipe: blog.avidmax.com/2020/02/04/how-to-tie-the-turkey-biot-parachute-adams/
In this week’s episode of Tying Tuesdays, watch as Brady ties the Biot Parachute!
When you want a dry fly that has a little more pizazz to it than a traditional parachute pattern you add biots. Not only does this provide a super elegant finished fly but it offers some aspects that you don’t get from a dubbed body. With a biot abdomen you end up with a perfectly segmented smooth body.
This allows for less weight and a fly that can slip slightly below the surface tension while fished. Change up your color and size to match a wide array of mayflies, midges and small stoneflies. Depending on what size and color you tie will also determine how you fish it. Smaller sizes are fished best behind a larger dry or small indicator to help pick up on those subtle strikes.
