Parachute Adams

Cheech - December, 2019

Kind of like when you are watching Monday Night Football and the left guard is from Ohio State and he says "THE Ohio State University..." Yeah, who cares. BUT, when you are talking about parachute flies, you should always say "THE Parachute Adams." Morphed from one of the most popular patterns in fly fishing history - the Adams, the Parachute Adams is kind of a more modern approach to fishing a dry fly because it gets rid of the hackle tipped wings that are somewhat unruly and harder and harder to find. The white post (or any color that you can see well) also boosts the angler's confidence in being able to see the fly while fishing. As you will see in the video, we swapped out the traditional tail for Coq de Leon fibers, and we show you how to achieve both brown and grizzly hackle out of one single hackle feather. Check out the video to see how it all comes together!
