Paraloop Style Sparkle PMD

There are two views of this fly. From the side and from above. The Paraloop style fly is easy to tie - especially if you have a gallows tool. You simply tie in the tail (trailing shuck in this case); dub the abdomen; make a thread loop to the gallows tool and wrap 5-6 turns of hackle up the thread loop and the same back down; tie off the hackle, release tension on the thread loop and dub the thorax in front of it; finally tie the hackled thread loop off at the eye.

The paraloop style, I feel, floats even better than the traditional parachute fly. In addition, the sort of "mohawk" hackle down the centerline of the fly adds a bit of a wing view.
