A Fly for the Wily Fish
If you prefer fly fishing in the cold, fast waters of trout habitat, you know that these fish can’t be fooled by a stock fly from a store-bought assortment. If you don’t have the right fly for the season, odds are high that you will go home empty-handed. Particularly during the midsummer mayfly hatch, one of the best tools in your tackle box is the Adam’s dry fly, which resembles the adult mayfly and is a powerful lure for most trout. In this video, Capt. Matt Thomas delivers a quick and dirty how-to for tying your own #20 Adam’s dry flies so that you’ll have the right lure in your fishing gear when the mayflies start hatching.
