Delaware Adams

From Halford's early dries to the Catskill dry and everything else that floats on the surface.

Maybe it's outrage at the Patriot on a Catskill forum. :)

Actually, it's a productive fly, and well tied here, although it looks be unconventional with respect to the blue portion of the body. It appears to be thread or floss rather than Crystal Flash. (I could be wrong.)

Bob: What no patriots on a Catskill forum? It is a Crystal Flash body...

As with several of the flies associated with Charlie Meck, it's often derided as a "junk" fly. Let in Patriots, and the next thing you know people will be posting Green Weenies. There goes the neighborhood.

(FWIW, I'd fish a Patriot/Green Weenie tandem any day of the week. And catch fish.)

It's a good thing I didn't post my Pink Foam Beetle.

Mary Dette turned 90(!) yesterday.
Tied a few Delaware Adams on a vintage Allcock W175 size 12 to celebrate.
