fly tying Yellow Sally stonefly

Yellow Sally fly

A parachute version of this popular little stonefly with a couple of unusual techniques. Although not necessary the revers hackle wing gives this pattern a more realistic feel. Here you can also learn my Para weld parachute technique that is particularly useful for patterns that don’t have an up wing.
