This one has been producing some amazing fish for me lately.



Only after the last tree has been cut down. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Great that you tie and fish dries.
Funny about the pattern because it's as close to a Mosquito as an Adams.
Of course the trout don't care and only mind when stuck by such a lovely fake!
Keep tying and fishing dries.

On "classic" dry flies,  the alteration of one of the major features usually changes the name of the pattern.  In this case, you substituted a quill body for a dubbed body.   I'd call it a mosquito, too, but nicely done!
