Thorax Adams - Dry Fly


The Adams is in my opinion one of the best all round dry flies, I tend to tie the body with mole fur but any form of blue/grey dubbing can be used. Make sure that the proportion of the body and tail are correct as are the hackles with the hook gape.

The fly can be fished static or on a varied retrieve via a floating line. I have had lots of success fishing this fly on lakes via an intermediate line and stripping the fly very quickly under the water, takes from rainbow trout using this method can be very aggressive.
