Now, we mustn't play with history :lol:
"Quill Adams" name is already taken----by Don Martinez. The name he attributed to his Macaw Quill dry fly\. An extensive history of the pattern is found in the Don Martinez chapter of my The Founding Flies\. The Quill Adams---(tied with Macaw quill body) was created in the 1940's by Martinez\.

I stand corrected Mike :)
I wasn’t aware the Whitcraft was also called Quill Adams. Of course I got the book too so I should have looked it up.

I found this left over Grizzly tips yesterday evening. Is Quilled Adams allowed? :)

Very nice - i’ve seen that same recipe used as a “mosquito” pattern.
As everyone knows, I’m very particular and in favor of quill bodies.

I've done so myself. To me, it's more of a Mosquito variant than an Adams variant.

Hi all,

I have used these for a while and can confirm that the trout in North Yorkshire are rather partial!

Having read (or studied?) Mikes book, I gave it the nickname of the 'mongrel' when listing it in my clubs catch returns when recording my days fishing. Mongrel as it was a cross between a Quill Gordon and an Adams.

Follow the link The Mongrel for further info.

Thanks

Alistair
