Ava's Hi-Vis Parachute Adams

Ava's Hi-Vis Parachute Adams is one of the most versatile mayfly dry fly patterns that I fish. I am using an AFF D103BL hook (down-eye, 1X-Long, dry fly hook). Check them out at

The super hair body creates a translucent abdomen and with great segmentation. The McFlyLon post allows the fly to be seen in most fishing conditions. I use Dark Barred Ginger rooster cape hackle, I really like the color of the hackle and it elevates the need to use brown/grizzly hackle. The parachute style can resemble an emerging, dun and or spinner mayfly. I have used this pattern on many different types of mayfly hatches and have had success. So bust out your materials and get tying.
