How to Tie a Light Cahill Parachute

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tim Flagler demonstrates how to tie the Light Summer Cahill fly pattern.  A variation on Dan Cahill’s original Catskill dry fly, the parachute version floats well, is  highly visible and works great as an early-to-mid-summer Pale Morning Dun imitation.

Tim’s technique here includes using UV-cured cement to secure the post and hackle—a foolproof method that keeps the underside of the fly clean and makes for a very durable fly.
