Pattern Description
The Parachute Ant was originated by Ed Schroeder and has become one of the most accepted ant patterns in existence. It is an uncomplicated fly to tie and highly effective as well. The parachute post makes for good visibility while the hackle provides low riding floatation. This pattern is a killer all along the Front Range, especially in Rocky Mountain National Park.
