I was really trying to make it work with a parachute but it just looked weird. It was way too crowded with the hump. I even tried different hump material (moose, elk, deer, and foam). I finally settled on something that looks really great. I think everyone will like it.

A parachute humpy doesn't make much sense unless it's a beetle imitation imo. Attractors like that work because they float high and dry. With a humpy, the generous upright hackle covers all the thread it takes to tie down the hair.

MEH TL;DR


Remember when I said I tied you a special salty version?
I wasn't kidding...

I didn't have any orange tinsel for the tail, so I figured if I just used some nice green tinsel, it might work. ;)

No, the rest of you are getting some more traditional.

Since this is a Royal swap, I have pondered some and have decided that a 'Humpy' isn't nearly regal sounding enough. So I will be tying a 'Royal Humphrey'.

That is all

The royal trude
big hoppers and salmon flies if you are heading west-but would use other tail material.

Flies are in the mail. I decided to use pheasant tippets for the tail because I just wanted to try them and they seemed more MF royal. I used turkey flats for the post because they are easier and make a nicer fly IMHO. Therefore I took out everything that would have made this a Wulf, so I'm just calling it a royal parachute. I hope y'all like em.

Royal Parachute
Hook: TMC 100 #16
Thread: Black Uni 6/0
Tail: Golden pheasant tippet
Post: White turkey flat
Body: Peacock herl and red floss
Hackle: Reddish brown

THus far, Little Lehigh, whheff, gfen, and now Frequenttyer have all their flies in.

That's four out of eleven people total. If you mailed them out, I have yet to see them (as I know Brookiebuster101 said his were going out late last week, IIRC).
