Originator: Joe Moore, BSA Co-owner
Hook: MFC 7000, Barbless MFC 7000KBL, or equivalent. Size 14
Thread: Danville 6/0 Rusty Brown or your choice
Tail/Trailing Shuck: Sparkle Emerger Yarn – Brown
Abdomen: Superfine Dry Fly Dubbing, Olive
Thorax: Olive Goose Biot, tied flat side up
Wing post: Calf tail, white. Try using a synthetic like tan or grey Widows Web as a “cheat” if you are tying these on your own!
Hackle: Grizzly, tied parachute style. Whiting 100 packs are a great way to get the perfect feathers for parachutes.
Notes: My Para-shuck series of dries, tied by MFC, is a variation of the classic parachute style and has worked well for us all over Yellowstone Country. The Flav Para-shuck in particular works great on Hebgen Lake during the Callibaetis hatch, in the NE Corner of the Park for drake mackerel emergers, and on the Madison and Henry’s Fork for its original purpose as a Flav imitation.
