Tan Adams Parachute Dry Fly

In this fly tying tutorial, I feature a fly that doesn't seem to get a lot of attention, the Tan Adams. This is a fly that tends to ride under the radar, as most anglers opt towards the traditional Adams in grey, though this one does an excellent job of imitating lighter-colored insects, such as caddisflies. If you enjoy fishing the Adams, then I recommend you try the Tan Adams out; you won't be disappointed!

Parachute Adams
When you need a go to pattern for any dark mayfly, then look no further than the Parachute Adams. This dry fly is no question my first dry fly that I choose out of my fly box before I really decide to match the hatch. I really focus on using this tie on the Yough when the ISOs are out and about during the dogs days of summer. Hope you enjoy...
