So, try to be careful not to crowd the hook eye. Now, we're ready to finish the fly off. We're going to do a whip finish. Take care to come around the hook eye. Be careful not to trap any fibers. You can actually, with any tying tool, just like the bobbin, if you're careful, you can actually move this thread a little bit and make some of those fibers bounce out of the way. So, keep that in mind, whether it's a bobbin or another tying tool, you can usually negotiate around hackle fibers if you take your time. We put about four or five turns on that. I'm going to point down at the table. We'll cut that loose. Now, I'm going to look down. Sometimes, you'll have a few renegade fibers sticking down. We got a couple here, trim those off, and the wing, we're going to trim to the finish length, which is normally about the body length on this fly. So, we'll go ahead and trim the wing to it's length and as a final step, so the hackle doesn't unwind, we'll take the head cement and I'll put another couple of drops and work them right into the base of the fly, the wing base there where the hackle, once the cement dries, the hackle will not be able to work loose and this fly will be a lot more durable. Put a little drop right at the hook eye. And there we have it, a Parachute Adams.
