Tying Instructions


Although actually created in the early 1920's by Leonard Halladay
of Michigan, the Adams was
named after Charles Adams, an angler from Ohio, who gave the fly a reputation.  


This is one of
the most popular flies in the United States and a favorite imitation of several mayfly hatches.  I
doubt you will find many anglers without one in their fly box.

Gray dubbing (this one is dark).
