Parachute style patterns use a hackle wound around a post to hold them in the surface film of the water.

Genetic hackles give the most consistant shape. The post should be high enough to wind the hackle 5 or 6 times around it.

Another Buzzer pattern that sits in the film of the water is the GRHE Suspender Buzzer - available here.
