Since it has been warming up a bit I been brushing Hazel most afternoons and saving some of the hair. I know tying with dog hair is nothing new but since they have this here depression on I figured I'd give it go.
Not my "tightest" Adams but I'm more interested in what you think about the tail? Will this dog hunt?
My little source.

Nice looking Para Adams.
I still have some dubbing from a lab/chessie retrieverthat died 15 years ago!

That's a great looking fly, I like parachute Adams, but I always have trouble with the post. yours looks really good.
Thanks for sharing

Looks pretty good to me! I've only used dog hair for the posts on my adams.

I tie a nymph with hair from my son's black lab; fly is called Beadhead Hogan. I tied a sort of pheasant tail using thick brown button thread. Caught fish in the park with it! Got some white hair to tie a Beadhead Lucky.

Ms. Annie is a shedding machine! I can get enough black hair off of her in one session with a defurminator comb to last for a long time! She doesn't particularily care for the grooming though. As soon as I finish she goes and finds something stinky to roll in!!!
