How to Tie the Purple Haze Fly Pattern

The Purple Haze is essentially a purple parachute adams, hoever a few differences exist.  The parachute is tied further back to balance the fly better, and the body is tied with a flex thread.  However you don’t need to do any of these to likely get the results.  The color purple isn’t exactly natural in the world for insects, however the look of the fly works really well on the water and likely looks a lot like a bugs natural color in a unique way.
