This is an alternative method to the traditional parachute hackle. The deer hair parachute technique replaces the hackle and parachute post of the normal para pattern.
But just as the original this enables the body of the fly under the hackle to sit deeper in the surface film and be presented in a more realistic manner in the feeding window of a fish.
There are many different techniques for tying Parachute hackles, and special gallows tools that enable you to keep both hands free for tying.
This is probably the easiest technique that requires no special tools and it can be applied to most traditional types of dry flies and emergers.
