Doug Pullen was our guest instructor tonight and he showed 27 fellow fly tyers the ins and outs of tying paraloop flies. Doug's presentation is detailed below along with the 3 flies Doug taught everybody to tie. Again Doug, your presentation was fabulous. We all learned a lot!

- There is no hackle attached to the side or base of the hook; all the hackle is attached on the top of the hook shank.
- The only hackle fibres extending below the level of the hook shank are the tips of the hackle brush
- The paraloop fly sits lower in the water
- The hackle is full assisting in the floatability of the fly.
- The fly when on the water has a very distinct profile.
- The hook point is clean of any materials.
- Dry flies
- Spent wing flies
- Wet flies
