This variation of the classic Parachute Adams features a forked tail, flashy rib and a hi-vis post. The most amazing change to the pattern is foam, wrapped at the thorax of the fly for extra flotation. This is a great fly especially as an attractor on small streams.

5 STARS !!!

These flies, designed with a small amount of foam at athe thorax, float all day. I'm 62 and the old eyes aren't what they once were, but I can pick these up on the water quite easily. Thanks.

Great Fly !

I have been buying this fly for years for my blue line backcountry brookie trips ! Floats all day and the wild brookies can't resist it ! It is imperative in pocket water that the fly floats from the second it hits the water and this fly does it perfectly ! Great fly and great service from the Fly Shop ! Tight lines to all, Kent in NH
