Here is the fly pattern sheet for Shane Stalcup’s CDC Parachute Dun.
Daiichi 1182 or similar dry fly hook, #12 – 22
8/0, color to match body
Dry fly dubbing
Stalcup identifies the following color options for other flies – tan (tan CDC), olive (dun CDC), and Adams (brown and gray CDC).
I tied the fly after watching this YouTube video on my friend John Sherry’s channel, NetKnots Fly Tying channel. While its description is for a Midge Larva, the materials and technique is exactly as described in Stalcup’s book.

Really like this fly. I watched the video and picked up a tip that I can use tying biot bodies.
