I modified this version with the barbell eyes to get it a little deeper in fast water. See Parakeet-Eyed, Parakeet Orange and Black; Parakeet, Pink and White; Parakeet Chartreuse and White; Parakeet, Chatreuse; and Parakeet, Purple for ideas about variations for this fly. I have also tied a Parakeet Tube Fly variation of this fly.
