Adams Cripple

Cheech - December, 2019

It seems far fetched, but there are times that a normal Adams or Parachute Adams just isn't buggy enough for the fish. This is a pattern from Blue Ribbon Flies that will keep the same colors of the Adams, but it sits lower in the water and has a buggier tail. Fish it either with a full hackle (as pictured) or trim the hackle flush on the bottom side
