Re: Midwest Fly Patterns Question (please dont be too upset)
I'll add my two cents in support of the Adams, tied traditional or especially parachutes. You can throw in a few Hare's Ear parachutes, HE nymphs, a Rusty Spinner and anything that ends with the name "Wulff." You can cover a lot of water with that group...
And, there's also a great new book out entitled "Classic Michigan Flies" that's an outstanding read for anyone looking for Midwestern-style flies. Let me know if you need help finding the title... Jerry, aka hairwing530
