How tie dry fly - Sedge mountain deer parachute

I tie this fly for the first time last year, it was a long time that I tried to build a large fly with certain characteristics, BIG, floating, light to launch, resistant, BIG, easy to build, BIG ... :-D

I tie this fly for the first time last year, it was a long time that I tried to build a large fly with certain characteristics, BIG, floating, light to launch, resistant, BIG, easy to build, BIG ... :-D

So one day I decided to go to the clamp and play with a fly tying material that I haven't touched for a while but a good friend has always advised me to use, the fur of mountain deer. Previously I used it and I knew its potential well, floating, fairly coarse, resistant enough hair shape, but I had always considered it to tie of definitely smaller flies, built maximum on hook of 14.

This time I used a 10 size grub barbless hook (a shape often used for the construction of sedge), so using kapok de dubbing well wrapped on the hook I created a fairly chubby body, just right for a sedge, at this point a beautiful wing abundant and long in fur of mountain deer.

Once the wing was built I immediately noticed that the effect was very nice, the mountain deer, especially on the back, has a decidedly longer hair than the side and with an uneven coloring, the hairs will be the right natural mix of brown and black, thus managing to give a good similarity as regards the coloring of the sedge wings, very present in my area and in most of northern Italy. Too bad we didn't think about it before ..

Later using foam and antron yarn I created the support for a mounting in parachute. The parachute in this case I decided to always do it with the mountaind deer fur moufflon (therefore mounting in a slot), which gives a linear color of the wings, for the chest finally of the simple ice dubbing golden brown (I often love to use it for the thorax of dry flies) .

Strengths and weaknesses:

  1. Using the mouflon for wing and parachute we create a remarkable support for the fly in buoyancy factor.
  2. The foam and antron yarn used to support the parachute fan ensures that the parachute itself does not come off, giving the fly more longevity.
  3. Kapok's dubbing means that even the body tends to float, even when using larger or heavier hooks, I won't have problems with the body drinking or sinking.
  4. The ice dubbing on the chest is a cure for my eyes :-D
  5. During the trial it defended itself quickly because it caught too many fish !!!
