Pardon me, cause I don't know from nothing about what fly to imitate this, but I have read all of these posts with that question in mind.
Isn't the Parachute Adams a Gray Body? Doesn't that pass for a kind of clear or "crystal" coloration?
And do they have a Whitish fly like that in the Rocky Mtns where I am?
This thought has been in the back of my mind. Is there a pattern that is sort of, well...not White, but a "crystal" Mayfly pattern? You know, sort of an all-clear or "flashabou" pattern.
Sorry if this is like, totally dumb (ha ha) but I have to ask.

So is there sort of a "crystal" pattern to imitate this Crystal--colored Mayfly?
Is it the Gray Bodied Parachute Adams which would serve to imitate the Mayfly in your photo?
