Army of Adams

The parachute Adams fly is arguably my most productive fly on Arizona’s small streams. This was the fly that made me want to learn to start tying flies. I have tried tying this with varying color schemes but find that the Adams gray seems to work the best. I will tie this with either a white or orange post and fishing this fly on a 10 foot leader with a nice dead drift is my go-to set up when I get on a stream. I tie most of my parachutes in a size 16 but have #12-20 in my box.
