Video: How to Tie a Tiny Parachute Adams

Parachutes give some tiers fits, and tiny parachutes can be downright maddening. Luckily, Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions has figured out a way to make the whole process simpler, producing a well-proportioned, cleaned fly in even itty-bitty sizes. The keys are in how Tim handles the materials and in how he makes use of uv-cure resin instead of thread wraps at two important points in the tying process. Give Tim’s method a try, and soon you’ll be twisting up very nice parachutes that will catch fish all winter on your nearest tailwater.
