Adams - Dry Fly

Adams created by Leonard Hallady.

Adams trout dry fly

The Adams dry fly, although invented in the Michigan in the early 1920's however it is still is a modern looking fly. This is a standard fly fishing fly in my fly box and has caught fish all around the world, indeed sales show it is one of the most popular flies world-wide.

Adams - Fly Tying Dressing

Fly Tying Difficulty: 3

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Adams. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the Adams at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Adams yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two Adams as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.

I'm new to fly fishing and I have to say that I've tried other places for my fly fishing flies but "the essential fly" beats the other places I've tried hands down! The quality of the fly is tops!

Bought as one of several flies. All nicely tied. There was a problem with the order but, despite it being a relatively small issue, the company have bent over backwards to sort it out. Excellent customer service and highly recommended

A fly for most occasions ... .. .

Well pleased, this is an excellent representation of the Adams fly. Survey the water, see what's hatching, then stick a #16 Adams on anyway, it seems to work very effectively in bringing up the fish.
