Adams Cripple

 
tied by blackdog1101
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: # 16 TMC 200R, bent slightly about 1/3 way down shank.
Thread: Black 8/0
Trailing shuck: Brown antron
Thorax: Pheasant tail
Wing: Lemon wood duck, pulled over hackle like a wing case, and tied off the front as a cripple.
Hackle: Brown & Grizzly hackles, trimmed flush top & bottom.
Thorax: Adams gray dubbing

Tying Instructions: A few notes:

Bend the hook shank slightly, so the shuck and abdomen will hang under the water surface. I use my barb crusher to hold the hook, and I bend it slightly with my fingers.

The wood duck and hackle are tied in first, then the thorax is dubbed and wrapped. Wrap the brown & grizzly hackles, and trim them flush with the top and bottom of the hook, so the hackle only sticks out to the sides. Then pull the wood duck over the back like a wing case, and leave the tips stick out over the eye of the hook. Whip finish under the tips, so they are raised up a bit from the eye of the hook.
Presentation Tips: Make a dead drift over a likely feeding spot, or present to an actively feeding fish.
