"Adams" Flymph

Post by Old Hat » Wed Jul 29, 2020 10:23 am

The Adams was developed in 1922. Almost a century old. A lot of variations in the last 98 years.

Tied this one on a Daiichi 1740. Pretty nice up eye hook. A little longer shank than most at 2x long, 1x heavy. Would be a nice hook proportionally for more nymphy wets.

I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
