I would venture to say that every fly angler in the last 50 years has weted this essential fly at least once. The first known use of this fly was back in the early 1920's on the Boardman in Michigan. Named not after its creator but after the first angler to hook a trout with it, the Adams Fly has been a big fish killer eversence. It is one of my favorites.
After 4 days on the road I am finally on the home stretch. Looking forward to getting home and tying some flies with the material I got during Christmas.
