The Adams was invented in the United States in the early 1920’s and it is one of the most used dry flies all around the world. The Adams is most effective when fished static in stillwater during rising, surface activity or hatches. The occasional twitch can be applied to give the Adams some natural movement. In flowing water the Adams can be used as a prospector fly, to see if the fish are keen to take off the surface.

The Adams is a great fly, that can be used all year round, and even produces the occasional Smallmouth Yellowfish.
