my first go at a step by step

Paraloop Emerger

by D.Graham.

First wind thread down half way around bend of hook and then return to
around the half way mark in open turns .

next catch in some fine copper wire on top of the hook shank.

wind thread over wire to half way around bend of hook catching in copper wire.

now apply dubbing around thread with the pinch and twist method.

take the dubbing about two thirds the way up the hook in even turns trying
to keep the body slim.

now wind copper wire in open turns over the dubbing to aid strength and durability
whilst catching in some 2 or 4lb mono which i don't find any need to be in a loop.

now take a relative sized cock hackle and tie in at base of mono.

add pinch of dubbing and create a thorax to match fly.

wind hackle around mono which for ease should be held in a gallows tool which will make this process easier to master.

now take fiber and stroke towards the bend of the hook and pull mono forward
and tie down and finish with a whip finish and trim any stray hackle fibers
that point downward or effect the eye of the hook.

well that's my fist step by step which I'm hoping i will be showing much more of when i have a better set up for lighting picture ect! until then bye for now.
