Hi.

 

Hope you're all well.

 

In my continuing effort to fill fly boxes, these #16 Adams marched across the desk tonight!

 

Hope you like them.

Thanks you guys. Anyone else like this pattern?

 

With the red quill, an Adams is a go-to pattern for me. I tie them on and cast them with relish!

My favorite dry. They work so well on the brookies here and I rarely fish anything else, well maybe a Quill Gordon.

 

 Nicely done Dale

Thanks Marc,

 

I don't fish nymphs; haven't in years! The visual aspect of drifting a dry, seeing the trout appear as it moves off the streambed to the fly, then follows, and eats it, is the best to me. In my shops, people asked me how I fished; I said that I used cane rods and dry flies. What did I do if they wouldn't take a dry? Keep trying. Or - the best one - did I ever hook any fish - or any big ones? My answer: I don't catch many and they are all small. Kind of took care of that, and brought humor to something that's fun!

 

Dave? You pickle your dry flies??

 

I remember your Adams, C16T.

 

More dries? Hmmm?

 

Nothing quite like an Adams. #12 and 14 next. No tying today; finishing edits on the next two books.

Hey my friend,

 

nice picture of prof tying dries.

They look as if the hook point could hover over the water surface film and only the tail tips and some tiny legs from hackle dip under surface.

fire hazard for fishes, these flies will catch.

 

Cheers and greets to your S.

We oughtn't tie to please others. If we're happy, that is what it is all about.

The real intent is to have fun tying.
