Notes on the Fly

This is a small variation of Fran Betters "Usual" which is a high floating all purpose emerger pattern.  The Adams by origin is considered an all purpose adult Mayfly pattern, however this may pass as a general attractor.  Another fly that will ride the rapids with ease... give it a try! 

**From now on I will only post tying instructions by request to save time, and allow me to post more patterns.  If you are interested in the instructions just leave a comment and I will get back to you as quick as possible.**

There was a day not too long ago, when I was casting a small Adams to some rising trout on the Oatka. I was in the zone! Every cast was near perfect and the trout seemed to reward me for it. And to make it even more enjoyable, there were no other people around. Just me and the trout.

Your rendition of the "Adams" reminds me of that morning and how glorious it was! Very nice work my friend. Keep up the good work!
