Hello tidalfish people,

I was able to get a steal over the long winter buying a big box of parachutes from a tackle shop going out of business. Most were tied, and some weren't. I have no idea how to tie parachute hair, is there any video tutorials out there or anything? Tried tying a couple, and the results were not great.

thanks

had a couple of lures that needed new chutes.. tied a couple, I'll be surprised if they make it through my shakedown..

Gratifying though, making the lure, presenting the lure and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Good luck!!

I highly recommend giving Ralph at June Bug tackle a call. He's shown myself as well as many other TF members how to tie parachutes.

If you're close to Northern AA Cty or So Balt Co, call Ralph and schedule a visit. His DVD is good, but the hands on instruction can't be beat.

You can also use little red zip ties and use the ziptie gun or pull them TIGHT! they work good, real cheap, real easy, and the fish dont know the difference.
