Fly of the Month

                                                          CHARTREUSE HAZE

The next fly in the haze series is a pattern I call the Chartreuse Haze. I have had success catching fish with flies that are tied with a chartreuse body, mostly caddis and attractor flies. So I figured if it works with caddis and attractors why not tie it as a parachute pattern. I think the body color will be a factor in having the fish take this fly.

Hook - Dry fly #14 - #18
Thread - Lt olive 8/0
Tail - Lt elk or deer hair
Body - Chartreuse dubbing
Rib - Peacock Krystal Flash
Post - White calf hair
Hackle - Brown and Grizzly mixed tied parachute style
