    I haven't tried snowshoe yet and it would be nice to see what can be done with it.

    Mine are a simple to tie BWO.

    Dang, Kelvin, that was super fast, and a great looking fly as well.

    I'm going with a mid emerger. When mids emerge they will tend to stick both their heads and then tails up first leaving their middle section in the water. The middle section tends to shine with the built up gasses regardless of the original color of the bug so my emergers are silver/static bag and they have flotation on both ends.

    Parachute material is still being debated. Also the distance between the fly and the parachute indicator..

    Parasol style flies work really well in a couple of spring creeks I fish. White polypro makes a pretty easy to spot parasol.
