Default Pair of Yellow Para Adams

My trip yesterday to the mountains renewed a long lost affection for the parachute Adams. So, I decided to tie a few up today and snap a shot of them. Historically, I fished the traditional gray parachute Adams extensively, but I am developing a liking of the yellow cousin below.





Recipe:
Hook: #16 TMC100
Tail: Grizzly & Brown Hackle Fibers Blended
Wing: White poly yarn
Body: Sulfur and Cream Dry Fly Dubbing Blended
Thread: Uni thread 8/0 Lt. Cahill

Thanks for the kind words.

It just so happens that I am as addicted to tying as fishing, and I also have a passion for photography. I still have a lot to learn regarding all three, but really enjoy sharing all with everyone here.

That may be my favorite dry fly pattern. Well, for the past couple of months or so anyway. I tried to tie some but they were awfully ugly. Yours are beautiful.

Those are nice! Kind of a pale yellow dubbing. Great proportions on them. I always had trouble making the tails too short on everything I tied...eventually, I decided to tie only EHC's.

Tie em on a curved shanked hook...klinkhammer (peacock herl optional) but i would go barbless cause they take em deep! Amazing the difference it makes
