Fly fishermans Ibuprofen, THE ADAMS

Don Baylor conducted The most informative seminar on spring creek and freestone insect life ever conducted at the Little Lehigh Fly Shop. Go to acquire a video of it.

During one of the five sessions he introduced the following concept, I take no credit for it.

Don carries heavily hackled Adams in various sizes. If confronted with a Mayfly dun he can’t match from his fly box he substitutes an Adams of the correct size.If the mystery bug is a spinner he trims the hackle top and bottom, WALA instant spinner. Do you wish your Adam was an emerger, trim the bottom of the hackle and smart you, you have a parachute pattern.

The next two blogs will contain my slant on what to do if you face the same dilemma with Caddis and midges.
