How to tie a Parachute Adams Fly: Video

Are the fish rising? Is the hatch made up of small mayflies or midges? Put on a Parachute Adams!

The Parachute Adams is a go-to fly; most directly imitating mayflies, this classic pattern is a great midge fly as well. Not only is it easy for the fisher to see with a white or bright parachute post, but the fish love it too!

Fish this fly solo to gentle risers on still water or any river, or as a sighter with a larger dry fly in a two-fly rig.

Now let’s see what you can do. #avidmaxflytyers
