Parallel Perch Fly Tying Video – Rob Hrabik

In this video, Rob Hrabik of Yosemite Outfitters ties a variation of Tom Loe’s Parallel Punk Perch.

A highly efficient fly anywhere trout live, Rob fishes this fly under an indicator, on the strip, as a streamer, and as a Euro nymph point fly. With a “balanced” fly you are less likely to snag bottom, but increase hook sets. Tom Loe once said balanced patterns were, “the most significant improvement in fly design in over a decade.”

Follow along as Rob shows you how to rig the bead and create amazing dubbing loops with simple materials such as Ice Dub and Simi Seal.
