Fly Tying Evening

Venue: Tararua Tramping Club Library


Parachute Adams

A simple, easy to tie yet very effective dry fly.  Very useful as summer progresses. Many trout at this time ignore high floating dries preferring insects trapped in the surface film. Snipping the hackle at the bottom of a standard dry can also achieve a lower floating dry fly.
