A parachute version of the familiar and common Baetis trout fly pattern. Parachute’s make it easy to see in rough water and abundant hatches with it’s highly visible post. Pair this with the common Blue Winged Olive for a macho combo. When it comes to selective trout, it helps to have a few versions of the Baetis pattern.
Parachute fly patterns are easier to track in heavy hatches and in rough waters. Blue Wing Olives or BWO’s or Baetis, whichever name it goes by, are one of the most important hatches. This fly pattern along with our Blue Wing Olive or other BWO flies, are important to keep in a variety of sizes. Trout can be rather picky.
