  1. The Adams dry fly is one of the most popular dry flies ever created for good reason. It mimics a mayfly perfectly and has proven itself throughout many years of fishing. It is widely effective on many rivers and creeks, and will continue to be for many years to come, if not forever! One of the catskill style flies, this will float high when heavily hackled, has a nice profile, and can be tied in a wide range of sizes. I regularly tie 16-20 with these, but I know of some people tying all the way down to a size 26 and up to a size 10. If you get a Cree hackle, then you can use just one feather rather than two. However cree tends to be much more expensive, so I tie with the double feather method to achieve the brown and grizzly look. As always I am listing the materials I used on this fly. Hook I used: Firehole sticks #419 in size 16 Thread: Brown Veevus 16/0 Tail: Grizzly and Brown Rooster Neck Wings: Grizzly Hen neck Body: Adams Gray, UV2 Fine and Dry dubbing Hackle: Brown and Grizzly Rooster Neck Head cement: Hard as Hull

  3. So, they are all mayflies. I recently acquired a hatch chart for my local river and they had listed differently tying patters for the BWO, and also suggested the Adams. My understanding is that they are all mayflies, however the color for the BWO matches better the spring time colors. And this is how the catch starts. Eventually they change colors to PMD. This seems to be the other way around for me though. Should the BWO make an appearance during summer (Greener- olive)? and PMD on spring and fall? Is the Adams a mix of both? Please help clarify! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
