20210327 This fly was demo'd at GRR weekly Fly Tying by Member Florin Sabac via Zoom, recording available on GRR's YouTube Channel.

Hook: Daichi 1160 Klinkhammer #16 -20 or similar
Thread: Uni 8/0 Brown
Tail: Golden Pheasant
Rib: Fine Copper Wire
Abdomen: Same pheasant as tails
Wing: Poly Yarn/McFlylon/Antron Parachute Post      
Hackle: Blue Dun 1 size larger than normal hook size
Thorax: BWO Dubbing      

1) This is a parachute BWO merged with a nymph
2) Post and hackle tied tied before dubbing thorax
3) Wrap hackle and whip finish on post after dubbing thorax
4) Size 20 for a klinkhammer hook is not that small compared to normal hooks
5) To go smaller one would have to use emerger hooks 18 and under
