Parasol Flies

I have bought a few parasol nymph and emerger flies recently and I was wondering how to use them? Are they supposed to be fished with the parasol acting as a float?

Has anyone had any success with these types of flies?

I have never used them, but the answer is that they are intended to be fished with the parachute portion floating and the nymph/pupa just under the surface. Unless the parachute is CDC, put floatant on it but NOT on the fly and toss it out into the water. It looked like a clever idea, but I had my doubts about its effectiveness. Let us know if it meets with success.

Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!... Our brethren are already in the field! It is in vain... to extenuate the matter...but as for me, Give Me Liberty or give me death.
